City Council Members Albert Vann, Lettitia James, and Bill deBlasio will introduce a Resolution at the City Council Meeting on June 25th calling on the Mayor to halt the Department of Homeless Service's plan to close the Manhattan central intake center for homeless men and transfer its functions to the Brooklyn Bedford-Atlantic Armory.

Prior to the meeting, at 12:00PM on June 25th, a press conference will held on the steps of City Hall with advocates, homeless persons, service providers, community residents and elected officials. The City Council meeting follows the rally at 1:30PM, and is open to the public. Although there are no opportunities for the public to speak at the meeting, it is a great chance to show all of the City Council the level of community opposition to this plan.

General public
