Legal Support Needed

The Troops Out Now coalition has requested legal support from the
progressive legal community for their encampment & march in Washington DC from
Sept 22-29 . We especially need legal observers for the Sept 29th march.

If you are available to be in DC anytime during the or be on-call, or have additional questions, please contact Imani Henry imani@troopsoutnow.org with your availability and contact information. There is a need for on-call attorneys the entire week, but especially on the 29th.


CALL FOR HOUSING

Housing is desperately needed for encampment participants. City policy prevents participants from actually sleeping on the campsite. Therefore, we need to find free and cheap housing in/around DC for the period of the encampment, in order to make participation in the encampment as broad as possible.

If you can share any space (bed, floorspace, sofa/bed) in your apartment, house, organization or other space, please email housing@troopsoutnow.org. If you are unable to email, please call (917) 279-9720.

Please try to include at least the following information in your email:

* Your Name & Email
* Your phone (& best times to call)
* Your location
* How many people you can house, and what dates
(We mainly need housing starting 9/21, but may need some housing earlier for key organizers)

Other helpful information:

* Nearest Metro line/station
* Sleeping conditions
("i.e. 1 queen bed plus floorspace for 3 sleeping bags")
* Other considerations
(i.e. "I have cats/dogs", "It is a 4th-floor walk-up", "Not near any public transportation", etc.)


Drivers/Cars Needed


Attention drivers with vehicles:

If you live in and/or are familiar with the DC-metro area, your help is greatly needed. We will need experienced drivers during then week, to help transport people to/from motels, food from restaurants, equipment, and various other events. If you have availability during the encampment, to help out with this task please contact us at logistics@troopsoutnow.org with the following information:

* Your name and email
* Your phone(s) and best times to call
* Your Availability to drive from 9/21 to 9/30
* Your vehicle type / how many it seats
* Storage space in vehicle.

Other helpful information:

* Your location / distance from Downtown DC

Even if you do not have much time available, but can make your vehicle available, we would greatly appreciate it, as that would greatly reduce rental costs.


Call for Medical Workers for S29 and the Encampment

As part of the preparations for the encampment and the march and rally, we are asking for volunteer health care workers who are doctors, nurses, first aiders and medics to assist at the first aide tent at the encampment and at the demonstration on Saturday.

We will have a bus at the back of the march that will pick up people who are unable to walk the march route. This vichicle will have water and first aide equipment. There will be an orientation the morning of the march.

If you are able to help out please call the International Action Center at 212-633-6646 and ask for or leave a message for Sharon Eolis. You may also email sharone@wwpublish.com.
