Sacramento, CA. SHOC Updates and upcoming events  ⛺ ⛺ ⛺

Posted on May 8, 2019 by Jonathan

Please join us for one or both of our upcoming events! 
SHOC’s annual Safe Ground Stake Down is a two day event that is full of fun and serious activities and workshops. We have open mic’s, art workshops, activist training, and a number of prearranged participant volunteers will camp out there for at least one night of stability.
The Garden Party is our annual fundraiser and is always lots of fun with good food (probably fajitas this year), good music (GP Bailey will also be at the Safe Ground Stake Down – listen to one of his songs, Got Caught Livin’ by the Rangers ), and great company (You and others like you!)
 
 
Stockton Blvd Eviction of Homeless Group

On May 1 a homeless community living on a vacant lot on Stockton Blvd. were evicted by a military-style process led by the Sheriff’s Dept. Advocates joined the residents in asking that the homeless people be allowed to stay but also be given services and sanitation. SHOC members were among the many community members that support the people’s rights to live there or somewhere nearby. Though we would like everyone to have housing, a place to pitch a tent is preferable to being evicted and moved and separated from friends and mutual support systems. Here are links to some news:
