Rally to return publishers grandchildren
December 16, 2013
Citizens of San Luis Obispo County gathered outside the courthouse on the morning of December 10, 2013 to call for the release of CalCoastNews publisher Karen Velie’s grandchildren from Child Welfare Services custody. Protesters then entered the SLO County Board of Supervisors meeting and addressed the board during public comment.
Later that day, Velie was permitted to visit with her children for the first time in four months. CWS is in the process of returning the children to their family.
