On June 5 at 3:00 pm, Sunrise Asheville will be hosting a Good Jobs For All teach-in to discuss the Green New Deal and the national relaunching of the Civilian Conservation Corps. Join them at the Burton St. Peace Gardens tomorrow to find out how a jobs program could benefit our community and what you can do to combat the climate crisis, systemic racism and economic inequality. The event will include a community-building visioning session that will ground participants in the rich history of the demand for a federal job guarantee, the opportunity in this political moment, and the unique role our movement has to play.
Partner speakers include DeWayne Barton from Hood Huggers, the Racial Justice Coalition, Raise Up NC and city council member, Kim Roney.
This event is intended to be accessible for all ages– so come along and invite your friends, community, and neighbors! Food, music, crafts and more will be provided!
