A couple of dozen church members and community activists gathered for a song and prayer vigil Monday outside apartments slated to be replaced by condos. Led by Clergy and Laity United activists, the group — including City Councilmember Das Williams — prayed for “developers and property owners to be just,” sang such classics as “This Land Is Your Land,” and “De Colores,” and listened to residents of the 10 apartments at 83 North La Cumbre Road testify that they want to stay in their neighborhood. The vigil was part of a broader effort to retain affordable housing in the city.
