A coalition of San Luis Obispo religious organizations plans to unite for a prayer vigil on Sept. 18 in honor of those who could be affected by cuts in a budget plan being presented to the governor.
Leaders of the Central Coast Clergy and Laity for Justice say the budget will cut $3 billion from schools, $1.4 billion from Health and Human Services programs, and could leave 250,000 children without health care.
Instead of making responsible choices and investing in long-term solutions, group director Rev. Caroline Hall said, “It will have the greatest impact on the most vulnerable in our community.”
The event is at 5 p.m. on Sept. 18 at Congre-gation Beth David in SLO.
