We Need Winter Clothing

It’s getting cold at night on the streets so we are looking for donations of warm jackets and sweaters in good condition to share with our friends on Skid Row. Donations can be dropped off or mailed to the Catholic Worker House at 632 N. Brittania St. Thanks so much!

Military Recruitment Center Shut Down

The December 7th American Friends Service Commitee action was a success! Protesters held a rally and blocked the door of a Military Recruitment Center, closing it for the day. The demonstration was part of a larger movement to bring about the Declaration of Peace.

September Action a Success!

The September 25th Declaration of Peace Action was a great success! A large group of people including many Catholic Worker volunteers and friends shut down the Hollywood Military Recruiting Center for the entire day! The protest was completely non-violent and no one was arrested. To see pictures of the event click here.

Jeff is out of jail!

Jeff Dietrich who was sentenced Friday Aug 18 to thirty days in jail for a March civil disobedience protest of the Iraq war was released Sunday morning Aug. 20 after spending only 36 hours in lock-up!
“I was freed by grace “he said, “the same grace that prevents all of our homeless friends from doing punitive jail time for insignificant ‘quality of Life crimes’. The jails are over crowded and the sheriff is forced to release all ‘non-violent’ offenders after they have served a mere one tenth of their sentence. Thank God for ACLU law suits that prevent the authorities from packing the already over crowded jails and making an unbearable situation even worse”
