Join in on the First Annual March for the people living in the streets, cars, hotels, tiny home villages etc. The city has lost its drive to help the vulnerable, the recently evicted renters of San Antonio, the segment of society which has blossomed into multi levels of people from not just drug addiction and mental instabilities, but to everyday working people who no longer can afford to live in this dominant market rate housing industry. The march will begin at Haven for Hope and will end at the San Antonio Housing Authority.
