A candle-light vigil to protest the City of Redding's practice of evicting families from their homes who cannot pay their utility bills on
Tuesday, February 3rd at 7 p.m. in front of City Hall !
"I just wanted to give everyone a progress report and to post the details of our upcoming planning meeting.
I have so far received well over three hundred e-mailed commitments to participate in our candle-light vigil on February 3rd to protest the City's practice of evicting families from their homes for their inability to pay an REU bill.
We have a number of people who are contacting media sources, attorneys, and civil rights organizations around the country. We also have skilled people to design a professional-looking leaflet for this event.
WE WILL BE HOLDING A PLANNING MEETING IN CAULDWELL PARK ON SATURDAY, JANUARY 17th AT 1:00 IN THE AFTERNOON (that's a week from the coming Saturday).
We will meet between Market Street and the Aquatic Center, and attendees will be asked to distribute leaflets to their friends, neighbors, neighborhood businesses, churches, civic clubs, or anything else with which they are involved. We will also work out the logistics of the vigil at that time.
I will be getting in touch with everyone I have contact information for about this meeting (and it appears we will even be blessed with good weather!)
If anyone has any questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you all so much for your interest in addressing this injustice!"
