Black Caucus To Make Final Jobs Tour Stop In L.A.

WASHINGTON - Beginning tomorrow, 13 Members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) will join Congresswoman Maxine Waters, in Los Angeles for the final stop on the CBC’s “For the People” Jobs Initiative, which includes a Job Fair and Town Hall at Crenshaw Christian Center in South Los Angeles.

Black News, African American News, Minority News, Civil Rights News, Discrimination, Racism, Racial Equality, Bias, Equality, Afro American NewsJoining Congresswoman Waters will be the co-hosts of the event, Reps. Laura Richardson and Karen Bass, as well as several members of the CBC, who will discuss jobs legislation and how to stimulate economic growth throughout the country. 
 
CBC Chairman Cleaver, who is expected to attend the event, remarked that the catalyst for the creation of the jobs initiative tour was the impact that the high unemployment was having in the black community.

He explained, "The Congressional Black Caucus, of which I am the chair began to look at what we can do in terms of reducing the depression level unemployment among African Americans. We came to the conclusion that it was pointless to just complain and growl the government's lack of attention to this segment of the American population that is unable to find work. So we decided that we would select five cities where unemployment was high, get major corporation to commit to hiring a large number of those individuals who came out and we would travel around the country with this job fair," Cleaver said.

At the completion of the initiative, Members of the CBC will have traveled to five cities during the CBC Jobs Initiative. Thousands have already gathered for town hall meetings, job fairs, job readiness workshops, and seminars as a part of this initiative.  
 
Last month Members of the CBC unanimously co-sponsored and introduced the Congressional Black Caucus ‘For the People’ Jobs Initiative Resolution (H. Res. 348) to encourage the House of Representatives to immediately consider and pass critical jobs legislation to address the growing jobs crisis in America. Additionally, CBC Members have introduced over 40 job creation bills since the beginning of the 112th Congress. To find out more about the “For the People” Jobs Initiative, please visit the CBC website. More details on the event are included below:

Other CBC members scheduled to participate in the Los Angeles town hall and job fair are: Reps. G. K. Butterfield, Andre Carson, Yvette Clarke, Lacy Clay, Jr., Sheila Jackson Lee, Hank Johnson, Barbara Lee, Cedric Richmond, and Frederica Wilson.
