Time for Justice, Time for Jobs
Webinar and Congressional Call-In Day: Dec. 17-18
The presidential administration is urging the House of Representatives to pass a job creation bill before Dec. 22. President Obama has said that transportation infrastructure spending will be a significant part of the bill.

Your experience and our studies have shown that the jobs the stimulus produced did not go to the people who need them most disadvantaged people: low income people, people of color, women and homeless/formerly homeless people.

Now is the time to take action to guarantee that any new jobs bill contains strong workforce equity requirements.

On Thur., Dec. 17th from 2-3pm ET, join our Webinar online or by phone for analysis, talking points, and training with:
· Judith Bell, PolicyLink
· Dr. Todd Swanstrom, Public Policy Research Center
· Rev. Paul Slack, ISAIAH
