Tuesday night, June 5, more than 200 POWER members and allies convened at Grace Christian Fellowship Church in Southwest Philadelphia for the first of four Economic Justice Forums POWER will conduct this month.
The event highlighted the pain of unemployment in city neighborhoods and secured commitments from City Councilmen Kenyatta Johnson and Curtis Jones to co-sponsor legislation that would prioritize city residents on jobs to be created by the $6 Billion Philadelphia International Airport expansion project and other large, subsidized projects.
POWER’s 2nd Economic Justice Forum, and the one that Old First will be participating in, will take place:
Tuesday, June 12th at 6:45pm
at Congregation Rodeph Shalom
615 N. Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA 19123
