VICTORY: San Diego Worker Comp Fraud Billboards in Spanish Removed
When San Diego County District Attorney Bonny Dumais put up Spanish-language billboards in North Park containing an intimidating message about workers’ compensation fraud, many in the neighborhood felt it denigrated Latinos. North Park resident Steven Shultz filed a complaint with the DA’s office only to be dismissed. That’s when Steven decided to start a MoveOn Petition in response to the fear-mongering billboards targeting Latinos. He demanded that the City of San Diego take down the billboards immediately. Finally, on December 4, the last remaining workers’ comp fraud billboard in North Park was taken down sometime in the morning.
