DON’T ARREST ME, HIRE ME: BUILD Leaders to Gather to Demand Mayor’s Response on Jobs! Tuesday, April 8th, 2014, 6:30 PM

PRESS ALERT

DON’T ARREST ME, HIRE ME:

BUILD Leaders to Gather to Demand Mayor’s Response on Jobs!

    

Contact: Ojeda Hall, Lead Organizer, BUILD, 443-253-9338, omhall10@gmail.com

Contact: Rev. Calvin Keene, Pastor, Memorial Baptist Church, 410-340-1130, pastor_ck@comcast.net

Contact: Rev. Marshall Prentice, Pastor, Zion Baptist Church, 410-837-4181, pastorprentice@hotmail.com

 

Who: Over 200 BUILD leaders from over 40 congregations and schools throughout Baltimore, including 40 Baltimoreans who are looking for work

When: Tuesday, April 8th, 2014, 6:30-8:00 PM

Where: Memorial Baptist Church, 1311 N. Caroline St, Baltimore, MD 21213

What: BUILD has a proposal that would put Baltimoreans to work immediately. It has been on the Mayor’s desk for months. BUILD has committed to put $1.2 million of our own money from our development work in Oliver into this proposal, and has asked the Mayor to invest $594,000 over three years.  For well over a month, the Mayor has neither responded to the proposal nor set a date to meet with BUILD about the proposal. “I was recently incarcerated, and I saw people come back into prison because they couldn’t support themselves when they got out,” says Dominic Rabey, a member of Zion Baptist Church in Oliver. “I need a job, bad. I have to work.”

 

On Tuesday BUILD will bring together more than 200 leaders to talk about what we are going to do to get the Mayor to meet with us and respond to our proposal. We will teach our jobs proposal and hear stories of those who are unemployed and seeking work, and then lay out our next steps to get the Mayor to meet with us or a plan to find her if she won’t meet. “We are angry with this Mayor. We are tired of what this Mayor is not doing,” says Rev. Marshall Prentice, Pastor of Zion Baptist Church. “So we will do what we have to do until we get a response.”
