Urban League CEO Takes Jobs Tour To Indiana

INDIANAPOLIS, IN - National Urban League President and CEO Marc H. Morial is visiting Urban League affiliates in Indiana as part of a national “jobs tour” to promote the League’s 12-Point Jobs Rebuild America Plan and dialogue with community members.

“We recognize that the people of Indiana are struggling through this unemployment crisis,” Morial said. “We look forward to a productive dialogue about how we can advocate, on the local and national level, for policies that address the communities most affected and help put Urban America back to work.”

Introduced earlier this year, the Jobs Rebuild America Plan offers a dozen dynamic and imaginative measures to both rescue those most profoundly affected by the ongoing economic emergency, while also remedying many of the underlying causes behind the recession’s inordinate and seemingly-amplified impact on the communities served by Urban League affiliates. The plan can be found at http://www.nul.org/content/12-step-blueprint-jobs-plan

Morial will visit four affiliates, whose presidents - Joseph A. Slash, of the Indianapolis Urban League, William Raymore of the Urban League of Madison County, Jonathan Ray of the Fort Wayne Urban League and Vanessa Allen of the Urban League of Northwest Indiana - will act as hosts for Morial’s visit.

Among the scheduled events are:

• A breakfast forum at 9 a.m. Thursday, February 24, at the Flagship Technology Center, 2701 Enterprise Drive, Anderson.

• A news conference at 2 p.m. Feb. 24 in the John and Ruth Rhinehart Music Center, Room 235, at Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne, 2101 East Coliseum Boulevard, Fort Wayne.

• A community forum at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 24 in the University’s Auer Reception Hall.

• An address to a community luncheon at Chateau Banquet Hall,
530 West 61st Avenue, Merrillville, at 11:30 a.m. Friday, February 25.
