Community Meeting 011213 blueIn September, Chicago businessman and civic leader Ed Gardner took a giant step in stopping construction work sites where the representation from the African-American community was minimal, if existent at all.That giant step has grown into a Movement for Justice and Jobs Now!A group of organizations, from across our community, are coming together for a Community Meeting, on January 12th, to reinforce our commitment to the thousands of African Americans who need work and whose lives would improve considerably if employment were available to them.Our collective efforts, to increase jobs for our community and increase business/contracts for our black contractors on construction and transportation projects, are ongoing.We are calling on our membership and others to join in this Community Meeting and demonstrate commitment to this struggle and the other struggles that will be required of us as we continue our move toward full employment, equality and justice.Sincerely,
COAL Board of DirectorsPlease click here for a copy of the Community Meeting Flyer.  Please click here for a copy of the Press Statement.
