Come out to the April 9th Commission Meeting to Support BOLD Justice’s Work to address Unemployment in Broward County!
On March 18th, BOLD Justice, of which Trinity Lutheran’s Justice Ministry is both a partner and full participant had their 6th annual Nehemiah Action Assembly. The Justice Ministry has been working throughout the year to address the issues of low elementary reading scores and high unemployment in Broward County. Nine County Commissioners were invited to the Assembly for the purpose of asking them to support a county-wide jobs ordinance which would increase job opportunities for Broward County residents who have been out of work for over 6 months and who have other barriers to unemployment. Three out of the nine commissioners attended and all committed to support such an ordinance.
To address the six additional commissioners who chose not to attend, BOLD Justice participants will be attending the April 9th Regular Commission meeting in order to drop off petitions that were signed at the Nehemiah Action Assembly. Details for this meeting are listed below. BOLD Justice would like to have as many people as possible there to show our commissioners that we are disappointed that they were unable to attend. So, even if you were unable to make the Nehemiah Action, and you are available during the daytime, please come out to support our Justice Ministry in this very important issue!Date: Tuesday, April 9th, 2013
