Encampment Eviction Support for B AVE
January 29 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm PST
Residents living at the B Ave encampment received a one week notice to vacate the area/relocate their camp on Tuesday,January 22nd. The deadline for people to vacate the camp is next Tuesday, January 29th at 9 am.
Eviction/moving day is always chaotic and often fairly traumatic for those trying to save their possessions and survival gear at the last moment.
We will be present at the encampment, starting at 8 am and will stay until the eviction is over (likely until around 11 or 12). The B Ave camp is located about one block north of the Union Gospel Mission.
We are in need of folks who can be present to help people pack & carry items, folks with cars who can help transport people and their belongings to new locations, and folks who can be present as witnesses and emotional supports. People who can bring items like food, coffee, water, dry clothing/blankets/sleeping bags, and tents are also needed. At this point, there is no rain in the forecast, but we want to be prepared in case that changes and people and their belongings become soaked during the move. It’s also likely that even with help present, there will be people who will lose survival gear and need new items.
