12.12 Support Occupy Eugene Monday!

The Eugene City Council is being asked to support an extension of Occupy Eugene’s exemption to the no camping ordinance so the occupation can legally remain at Washington/Jefferson Park. The present exemption expires December 15 and the City council will meet to decide our fate this Monday, December 12th. Please join us to express your support for Occupy Eugene’s right to remain in Washington/Jefferson Park so OE can continue to provide a home for many of Eugene’s unhoused residents and to advocate for economic and social justice.
