Congratulations to July’s grant winner – Campaign to End Employment Discrimination!
Campaign to End Employment Discrimination, a project of Voice Of The Ex-Offender (VOTE), is a media outreach campaign aimed at encouraging employers to hire ex-offenders. VOTE is a grassroots organization dedicated to the economic empowerment and civic engagement of formerly incarcerated people and their community.
Please join us at our next Awesome Hours event – Saturday, July 20th (6-8pm) at Casa Borrega, 1719 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd. We’ll present a $1000 check to this month’s winner, Campaign To End Employment Discrimination. After the check giveaway, trustees will be available to talk one-on-one with you about your project ideas and help you to apply.
