Local Leaders and the Interfaith Alliance stand together for Securing a Safer Coachella

Post Date:04/02/2015 4:58 PM

COACHELLA, April 1, 2015 – The City of Coachella and the Community’s Religious Leaders will hold a press conference for “Securing a Safer Coachella” on Friday, April 3, 2015 at 10:00am in the City Hall’s Council Chambers located at 1515 Sixth Street, Coachella, CA 92236.

At the City of Coachella’s monthly Interfaith Alliance Meeting, the recent gang and gun violence of the past four months was discussed and the participants agreed that the Community must take a stand for Securing a Safer Coachella.

“Our lord no longer suffers and dies but too many of our young men and women do suffer and die unjustly and without cause because of living in violence, hatred, fear, revenge, and in some cases a gang mentality,” said Father Guy of Our Lady of Soledad, Coachella. “We stand together of all different faiths and religions because we are all brothers and sisters of the same God. We come together for peaceful solutions to our difficulties. We also need justice for those who have suffered and died.”

The public is invited to attend the press conference where local leaders will discuss what Securing a Safer Coachella means and what they believe the public can do to help deter or prevent these violent acts within the City.
