Valley Interfaith Urges Pharr Officials to Address Concerns of Colonias
Valley Interfaith leader Eddie Anaya, organized a forum in Las Milpas to identify the concerns of colonia residents of Pharr. He brought 20 leaders with him to a city-sponsored forum later that week to relay their priorities: a satellite library on the Southside of Pharr, public transportation, improved police response, and identifying an alternative water supply.
“The most important thing about this is teaching our people to voice their opinion and understand the process,” said Anaya.
