In the Times of Protest Part 2

Saturday, August 19 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

| Free

Saturday May 20, we held a workshop about the San Antonio ordinances limiting free speech and access to public gatherings on streets, sidewalks and in the airport. There was interest and energy from the community members who showed up to revive the Free Speech Coalition that was active starting in 2006 and to start organizing once again against these ordinances. There has been a City Council Consideration Request filed to re-examine those ordinances. BUT we as community decided that WE need to be the ones coming up with changes to/a new ordinance.

Join us for a community update meeting Saturday August 19, starting at 10 AM at the Esperanza, 922 San Pedro Ave. to continue the next steps on organizing around this issue.

There is a community sub-committee meeting to work on drafting a new ordinance. If you are interested in joining please call us at (210) 228-0201 or email esperanza@esperanzacenter.org.

This event is hosted by a coalition of community members and organizations committed to make our streets and side walks accessible again for public gatherings and protests.
