Where is the Margin of South Orange County?

The “margin” of society refers to a philosophical rather than physical place.  It includes those for whom the dominant culture is inhospitable.  They are alienated from the main workings of culture, economy and politics, whose benefit lands on those closer to the philosophical “center.”  In South Orange County the margin may include the homeless, those with special needs, the elderly, the substance-addicted and minority racial groups.  The particular segment of society’s margin for which Unidos was founded is the economically disadvantaged Latino community, concentrated in downtown San Juan Capistrano.
