Members of the Homeless Person's Bill of Rights Coalition dressed as Mary, Jesus, and assorted angels for a rally at City Hall on Thursday.
The coalition thanked the city for adding restroom facilities and revising protocols for police interaction with the homeless.
Val Joeckel, who formerly lived without a home, says, "I couch surfed, I lived in my car and I even slept outside or wandered the streets if I had nowhere to go. I've been fortunate enough to be welcomed at the Olive Branch, a house in the loves...community. Without them I would have had nowhere to bring my child when I had him."
Shortly after the brief rally the advocates walked upstairs to the Mayor's office to deliver a petition calling for the city to fully adopt a homeless persons bill of rights.
