RIO ARRIBA COUNTY, N.M.— Cops, politicians, students and teachers answered a Call to Action in Espanola Monday.
They want to solve the crime crisis impacting their community.
The mayor was expecting 75 people to show up at the meeting, but more than 200 came together to work toward a common goal.
“This isn't a one-stop process, this is just the foundation for moving the community to a better place into the future,” said Carmela Roybal, who specializes in identifying issues in communities of color.
The plan going forward includes creating groups, using community values they identified during Monday’s meeting.
The next step will be for those groups to address issues in schools, at home or wherever a problem may arise.
