Update from first day of trial

 Jury selection wrapped up this afternoon and the Prosecution gave their opening statement before everybody was dismissed. Check out this video about the day's events!

Trial resumes tomorrow (Tuesday) at 11 am in room #112 again with opening statements from the Defense. If you can, come down to the courthouse to show your support for the defendants (and you get to wear one of the great Franklin for the People t-shirts shown in the video!).

We talked to a lot of interested and concerned people while we were handing out fliers this morning, so we'll be doing more of that tomorrow, but this time in Franklin Square (13th and K St NW), in front of the Franklin building itself. Meet us to help flier, either from 8:30 to 9:30 am or from 1 to 2 pm to get the word out about the trial and the ongoing struggle around Franklin shelter.

And if you can't make it in person tomorrow, go to the Take Action page and contact Mayor Gray and the Council to make sure they know DC residents want public property like Franklin to be put to use to meet communities' needs!

And keep following us on Twitter: @freefranklindc and please help spread the word by sharing this blog, video, tweets. 

Thanks for all your support!
