5pm Friday, February 22 in the Whiteaker NeighborhoodThe SLEEPS’ Strike Team will offer a view into the darker side of being a human, un-housed, and trying to sleep on the streets of Eugene, Oregon.
Every night the human biological need to sleep demands its time and space. It has no mercy, nor heed to environment. And short of death nothing can ever prevent it. The uncontrollable consequences of being human are inescapable for all human beings. However, for those in our community that are un-housed the consequences shift in hue and tone to a sometimes very dark reality. How would you sleep if you knew each night’s effort to sleep was a roll of the dice, with the odds always against you…
Come join our Last Friday Art Walk Street Theater team for a night of light vs dark and life vs death.
And as always SLEEPS asks you to consider what role you fill in the urban theater we call life?
For more information contact Hedin at firstname.lastname@example.org

Wayne Morse Free Speech Plaza at 8th & Oak, Eugene
Celebrate freedom, stand up for your rights, and stand in solidarity with community members who wish to legally challenge Lane County’s unconstitutional curfew at the Wayne Morse Free Speech Plaza. Bring joy, cookies, protest signs, and musical instruments.
Article 1, Section 8 of the Oregon Constitution states the following:
“No law shall be passed restraining the free expression of opinion, or restricting the right to speak, write, or print freely on any subject whatever; but every person shall be responsible for the abuse of this right.”
The Wayne Morse Free Speech Plaza “curfew” is an unconstitutional restraint upon free speech and public assembly, and this is a call to action for all citizens of Eugene to stand up for the Constitution and the right to protest 24-7 in traditional public forums such as the Plaza. Our aim is to have the curfew declared unconstitutional in a court of law. To achieve this, SLEEPS in conjunction with local activists is planning a day of protest followed by a night of celebration and civil disobedience next Monday, January 7th. Free speech and unhoused activists along with other community members, both housed and unhoused, intend on being arrested in numbers for violating the Plaza curfew.
We invite you to come in celebration and solidarity to make a statement to City and County government that we as a community will not accept the violation of our constitutional rights.
