~   The Venice Community Unity “Sleep-Out For The Homeless”   ~  in support of our homeless neighbors

Housed-people slept out on the lawn of Beyond Baroque and SPARC (on Venice Blvd.) on the night of Saturday August 6 as a way of showing solidarity with our homeless neighbors. A small but entertaining program was designed to keep us engaged and alert, prior to crawling into our sleeping bags (or cardboard condos), to spend the night under the stars!

Over 100 people attended the event and 75 of them stayed overnight, sleeping out in the open on the ground. It was a very socially conscious opportunity and lot’s of fun, too! Check out the news reports on KTLA Channel 5
