Leaders Speaking Out on Equal Representation
On a Friday night in January Costa Mesa leaders from Mesa Del Mar, St. Joachim Catholic Church, and the Immigration Core team congregated in the Bravo family's living room to discuss what equal representation in their city means and what the climate has been for them in trying to be heard in their city. That discussion was a very similar to one being had in Anaheim by our leaders. The Daily Pilot released an article today about this very issue titled, "At-large voting: Latino handicap?"
Our very own Juana Trejo had this to say about why she initially got involved and how she started to get her voice out.
"We're tired of our neighborhood being dirty," she remembered telling the council. "We're tired of having our walls covered in graffiti. We want a more healthy and safe place for our families."
