Hello members of Olympia-area faith communities, service providers, advocacy groups, and others,

We are forwarding you as an FYI our urgent appeal to the Olympia City Council for a pause on the sweep of the 4th Ave bridge camp presently scheduled to take place at 8 AM Wednesday, Sept 11. We invite you to consider sending your own appeal to the Council and to senior City staff using the recipient addresses in the letter below. (We have also attached a set of talking points for your consideration.)

We also encourage you to consider attending the City Council meeting at 7 PM this Tuesday, September 10, where the Council will be considering a motion to pause this sweep. If you wish to speak to the Council during the public comment period, you need to show up between 6:30 and 7 PM to sign up.

If the Council does not pause this sweep, we also invite you to show up at the 4th Ave bridge camp before 8 AM the following day, Sept 11, to be present as a witness or to assist camp residents in trying to save their belongings.

Thank you from Just Housing Olympia for all that you do for our community. For more information contact:
