Sleeping Bag Drive

Thank you to all who participated in SHOC’s sleeping bag drive this past month! Most people donated money — we received $1,030. We bought 42 sleeping bags and passed them out to people living outdoors in need of extra warmth this winter.

Some people donated several sleeping bags we hung onto for emergency requests.

(If you still want to donate sleeping bags, Mercy Pedalers is distributing them and also Sacramento Loaves & Fishes distributes cold weather gear to their guests.)

No No-fault Evictions

(No SHOC meeting this Tuesday, November 4)

Pass an Emergency Moratorium On No-Cause Evictions! On January 1, 2020, AB 1482, the Tenant Protection Act goes into effect. So landlords are hurrying up and giving out 60-day no-fault eviction notices to beat this law. Communities across California are facing this same problem of landlords evicting tenants at increased rates, and City and County jurisdictions are having to step up with emergency ordinances to protect tenants.

Sign a petition to Sacramento Board of Supervisors and come out Tuesday, November 5th to show community support for emergency tenant protections. Gather at 9:30. Meeting at 11am.
