    After a ground breaking ruling by Federal Court Judge Bury on Dec. 22nd, 2014, litigated by houseless actvists John Cooper and Jon McLane, virtually decriminalizing all of the Tucson policies in place that criminalized the condition of houselessness we invite you to come and eat, enjoy music, and learn what the laws are in regard to existing on public land in Tucson.
