Whoville was a protest camp in Eugene, Oregon demonstrating the need for unhoused people to be legally allowed the minimal human right of sheltering themselves from the weather and sleep.  Whoville was named after the homeless camps during the depression, while Hoover was president–they were called “Hoovervilles”.

Whoville was formed and moved away from the SLEEPS protest at Free Speech Plaza with about a half dozen campers originally.  The police evicted them from site after site until they arrived at Hilyard & Broadway Avenue.  There the camp grew and eventually attained temporary permission from the city of Eugene, to provide shelter for about 50 people at any one time.  Whoville stayed at Hilyard & Broadway from October to April and helped many people during the harsh winter weather conditions of 2013-14.
