Group Airs Injunction Concerns in Letter to Council


Ahead of the City Council’s closed-session meeting on Tuesday — during which the proposed gang injunction was discussed — Pro-Youth Movement, an organization formed to find different ways to deal with the city’s at-risk youth and cofounded by Councilmember Cathy Murillo, sent a letter to the council and other city officials that outlines its issues over what the injunction could include. Among the group’s concerns with the proposed injunction — which will be ruled on in court in March — are the number of individuals it could target and whether it will affect them while riding public transportation or taking their kids to school. The full letter is at independent.com/opinions.
