KCCA recently provided free childcare at the Jobs with Justice Speak Out Now event at Trinity Church near the capitol on April 2, 2011.
From the Jobs with Justice website:
Jobs with Justice engages workers and allies in campaigns to win justice in workplaces and in communities where working families live. JwJ was founded in 1987 with the vision of lifting up workers’ rights struggles as part of a larger campaign for economic and social justice.
The speak out event was an opportunity for individuals to speak out about their difficulties finding employment in these difficult times. Here is a summary from an AFSC writeup about the event:
Service organizations and advocacy groups were present to help people with their needs including expungement support, signing up for food stamps, TANF, and medicare. Volunteers from the Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation were there to make people aware of free legal services for help with legal issues like eviction defense, landlord-tenant disputes, protection from unlawful debt collection, and making employers pay unpaid wages. Attendees could also receive free massages and haircuts. BLOCS, a group that works to eliminate brutality from the Atlanta Police Department was there, as well as Kelli’s Childcare Collective, a group that offers free childcare at activist events.
