Dear Alliance Member:
We have finished meeting with the interested parties and remain optimistic that the time spent was productive. That said, we will be filing our lawsuit in Federal Court on Tuesday, March 10. We plan to have a press conference at 10 a.m. at the Midnight Mission (San Pedro Street and Sixth Street). There will be parking available across from the Midnight Mission on San Pedro Street. We will also provide escorts from cars to the Mission. The conference will be held in the interior of the mission.
We encourage attendance from Alliance members (all of you) and their guests. The more Alliance members standing with us at the press conference the better. It will be helpful if you can advise me by return email if you are able to attend and roughly how many you will be bringing. Feel free to contact me should you have questions.
Please share the attached Overview and FAQ with your friends, family, and colleagues who may be supportive of what we’re doing. We also encourage everyone who is able to donate to support this effort to visit https://www.gofundme.com/f/la-alliance-for-human-rights or contact Hal Bastian for further information on donating ([email protected]). Your prior contributions have gone directly to the law firm and are not reflected in the GoFundMe page. After the filing, we expect the general public might be researching us. If we can have a higher number of contributions, regardless of amount, on the GoFundMe page, it would show a more accurate picture of our support to date. We would like as many “contributors” as possible.
Thank you for your continued support,
