The People’s State of the County

Invest in San Diego Families Coalition Will Hold an Event to Present Its Vision to Transform San Diego County

San Diego – Members of the Invest in San Diego Families (ISDF) coalition, including residents, workers, community organizations, unions and faith-based organizations, will present on Wednesday the People’s State of the County, an aspirational platform to make San Diego County a place where all families can thrive.

For too long, the San Diego County Board of Supervisors has focused policies and budgets that ignore many of the people that the supervisors were elected to represent, including historically underserved communities, working families and immigrants. The result is a county where many people struggle to find affordable housing, find work that pays a living wage and access the public services they need.

ISDF’s will urge county leaders to allocate much needed resources to our struggling communities and ensure the safety and well-being of all county residents. We deserve a county that upholds our values of compassion, community, transparency and accountability.

Please join us for this important news event.

WHAT:  ISDF presents the People’s State of the County.

WHEN:  Wednesday, Feb. 19, 2020 at 5 p.m.

WHERE: County Administration Building,1600 Pacific Hwy., San Diego, CA 92101.

    Corner of Harbor Dr. and Ash St.

We encourage all people to come out and hear ISDF’s vision for the County and commit to joining our fight.
