Unemployed? Our support group starts 6/17!

Unemployed or underemployed? Could you use some support from people who have been there? Workers’ Center Community Union Organizers have stepped forward to help others who are dealing with all the issues surrounding unemployment.

Come to the inaugural meeting, Thursday June 17th at 4:30-6:00 at the Workers’ Center. And please: spread the word to others also.


Speaking of unemployment and its injustices, read this Huffington Post article called Disturbing Job Ads: ‘The Unemployed Will not be Considered.’ The corporate trend described in the article is that companies are tossing resumes from the unemployed — and unemployed for any reason whatsoever — right in the circular file.


Reminder: Come to our Summer potluck Saturday June 12th at 5:30-7:30. We’ll be at the Unitarian Church of Ithaca on the corner of Buffalo and Aurora.


Celebrate Juneteenth with a celebration and festival at Southside Community Center, June 19th, 11 am — 7 pm. Southside is located at 305 S. Plain Street in Ithaca.

This year’s Juneteenth theme will be Reflections of Our Past, Light Our Future. It promised to be a fun filled celebration showcasing live musical and dance performances, children’s activities, arts and crafts, vendor and community agency tables, a silent auction and — of course! — outstanding food.

Juneteenth celebrates the news of the Emancipation Proclamation throughout the southern US reaching each and every enslaved person.
