Santa Ana, Calif. — The Orange County Board of Supervisors and the Office of Immigrant and Refugee Affairs (OIRA) are excited to host the first in-person meeting of the OC Good Neighbor Task Force, which aims to create a more fluid and responsive system of welcome and integration for immigrant and refugee families who call Orange County home.

  • Time: 12 – 1 p.m.
