Vocal alliance lobbies San Diego to focus budget more on low-income residents

Community Budget Alliance coalition organizer Andrea Gaspar tells the San Diego Union Tribune that the City of San Diego has long favored the wealthy and well-connected and the pandemic is exacerbating these inequities:

"Institutional racism has existed on the City Council since it was created, so we need to focus on making sure these neighborhoods get their fair share."

Andrea Gaspar, Center on Policy Initiatives

Community Budget Alliance member Jose Lopez’ (ACCE) testimony to City Council on May 21 is quoted in the article: 

“Before this crisis many of us were already struggling to keep up with skyrocketing rent prices and stagnant/poverty wages. Now it’s worse, and it’s getting worse every day as the debt continues to buildup.”
