SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Activists, residents, and homeless individuals came together Saturday to voice their concerns with the city's homeless crisis.

Voices of Our City Choir, an organization that serves and protects local homeless individuals, marched through San Diego Saturday ahead of the city council's meeting to hear solutions to homelessness issues. Members of the group are either directly or indirectly affected by homelessness and work to change the perception behind the stigma. 

The march, led by the San Diego's Women's Drum Circle, snaked through downtown near City Hall to bring awareness to the county's homelessness problem; the group's sign reading, "all San Diegans deserve a safe place to live!"

The march ended with a news conference where organizers discussed their solutions to homelessness and the affordable housing issues, which they plan to present to the city on Monday.
