A2 City Council Meeting: Support Sanctuary City Status

Date: 
Mon, Apr 3, 2017 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

City:

UPDATE: Becasue this is an ordinance (rather than a resolution) and it's the second (final) reading/vote, I believe that EVERYONE who wants to, can speak on Monday night. Even if you don't make it onto the speakers' list at the beginning of the meeting, there is a place on the agenda for people to speak about the "Don't Ask" ordinance.
---------
UPDATE: If possible, let's meet up at 6:30 on the first floor by the benches to have a short discussion before heading up to the meeting together.
