Join us at 1:00 pm on April 1, 2012 for the April Fools’ Day Parade. Come dressed up as one of the fools responsible for the criminalization of homelessness in Los Angeles and beyond – like Mayor Villaraigosa, Councilmember Jan Perry, Estela Lopez of the CCEA, or LAPD Chief Beck.

The Skid Row parade and street theatre will be one of 14 direct actions taking place in cities across the country as part of a National Day of Action for the Right to Exist, organized by the Western Regional Advocacy Project. One of the goals is to put the devastating and discriminatory treatment of homeless and poor people in the public spotlight and build pressure for the reinvestment in affordable housing.

Hope to see all of you at the LA CAN office (530 S. Main St.) in full costume at 1 pm on Sunday, April 1st.
