At the F27 (February 27) rally, Three veterans from H.A.H.A (Homeless Against Homelessness in America) testified at City Council 9:30am Wednesday meeting. H.A.H.A., Right 2 Survive, and Right 2 Dream Too call for the creation of more low cost, self-managed rest areas like Right 2 Dream Too. We started off at right to dream too marched o city hall with H.A.H.A. leading the way through the street marching and chanting.
Wade Varner gave a pep talk to ralliers before we descended into the city chambers, where the founders of H.A.H.A addressed the council members. While the last person spoke members from Right 2 Survive and Dreamers from Right 2 Dream Too, organizers and dreamers hung shamrock streamers from the balcony. Chanting as they left ”House keys not handcuffs.” The chambers leaving security to hastily remove to colorful streamers! Hundreds of shamrocks were filled with positive messaging from dreamers that said; Solidarity, community, love, trust, safety, sleep, etc… A large bucket also filled with shamrock messages was delivered to Charlie Hall’s office before we reconvened outside. Lisa Fay MCee’d the speakers; the message was the need for more places like Dignity Village and support for Right 2 dream Too. No one deserves to be without a shelter. Before marching back down to R2DTOO, Wade announced that everyone was welcome to join us there for a hot meal. And a delicious meal it was!
