The Center for Community Based Enterprise (C2BE), Job With Justice, Colors Co-op Academy, The Detroit Black Community Food Security Network (DBCFSN) and The Cooperation Group are continue to jointly sponsoring a potluck series to discuss job creation and economic development ideas for broadly empowering the people of Detroit. The purpose of these gatherings are simple: to break bread over good conversation surrounding the work of building a new economy, based in human need, full employment /green jobs which works for everyone. Everyone is invited who is doing or is interested in doing this kind of community-building. As we get to know each other, we may foster relationships that will enhance our various respective projects and create the possibility for future new-economy collaborations. About the Potluck If you have time to cook, make your favorite dish and bring it to the potluck. If you have more money than time, stop at your favorite deli or restaurant and bring their best edibles. No time and a little money? Stop by your favorite store and pick up your favorite munchies (bag of chips, cookies or whatever). No money or time? Just bring yourself - your presence is a cherished gift.

Workers In Black March Each year workplace injuries and illnesses take the lives of millions around the world. Each April 28 unions around the world honor the lives lost and damaged by unsafe and unhealthy work. The 2014 Workers Memorial Day event in Detroit will be held Monday April 28th at Hart Plaza. Participants will wear black and hold a silent march and vigil. This year's theme is more redtape, fewer bloody bandages. The temping of work, weak OSHA, privatized government work, and Anti-worker Industrial Complex are dangerous to your health. We need more oversight. More regulation and enforcement. Not less. Please join us Tuesday February 11th for a meeting on Detroit Workers Memorial Day at the Jobs with Justice office in the Michigan Building #520 (220 Bagley); you know the one, it's got a parking lot in a movie theater. Attached is a poster from Hazards.org a UK workplace safety magazine. Check them out. Jobs with Justice jwjsem@gmail.org voicemail 248-828-9377
