Take Back The Stones

3:00 at Philosopher stones. Join us for food, community building, resisting displacement, and an end to the state violence against Black homeless people. 

The Mayor and Chief Koval have made a final decision to remove the philosopher stones at the park on the top of state street and have started doing it on Monday the 10th. This has been a spot where Black homeless people and low income people gather and build community due to having no other place to go. A similar group of Black homeless people have been moved and criminalized for many years from Brittingham Park, to Peace Park, to concrete park to Philosopher stones park. Kicking people out of public space is not the answer, we need a day resource center, a wet shelter, better mental health services, better case management, better night shelter services, more affordable housing with supportive services, an end to over policing and criminalizing this group of people. There are some good steps being made in the city and county towards these ends. Black homeless people are at the root of the racial disparities in poverty, policing, and mass incarceration. This is an issue for all of us to be engaged on.
