This evening, residents are scheduled to join leaders from the Orange County Congregation Community Organization—a faith-based federation of 22 congregations representing 48,000 families in Anaheim, Costa Mesa, Fullerton, Garden Grove, Santa Ana, Mission Viejo, and San Juan Capistrano—in presenting the council more than 1,000 signed petitions asking the city to renew the Anaheim Affordable Housing Strategic Plan.
According to the OCCCO, the four-year-old plan has led to the construction of 1,300 affordable units.
Following their presentation at the council meeting, which begins at 5 p.m. in the council chambers at 200 S. Anaheim Blvd., the affordable housing boosters will gather for a procession to St. Boniface Church for an interfaith prayer service.
What will they be praying for? Justice.
