The CBC is also launching the For the People Jobs Initiative:
To address the unemployment crisis and the need for job creation solutions in undeserved communities, the Congressional Black Caucus called upon private and public sector partners to immediately remedy the crisis by going into communities with legitimate, immediate employment opportunities for the underserved. Additionally, the Caucus is reaching out to communities to receive their proposed solutions, advice, and ideas on how best to immediately address the crisis.
