Inland officials gathered to lend their endorsements to the new Civil Rights Institute of Inland Southern California on October 23, 2017. Keynote speakers Senator Richard Roth and Assemblyman José Medina pledged their support and were joined by elected officials from Riverside County and several inland cities who attended. The kick off for the $2 million campaign had been in its silent phase for approximately three months and went public at the event.
Ken Souder, president and chief executive officer of Wakeland Housing and Development, the project developer, shared the plans for the creation of Mission Heritage Plaza, 72 units of affordable housing that will rise above the new Civil Rights Institute and the new offices of the Fair Housing Council of Riverside County.
