Amistad Awards: Jobs for Youth – Jobs for All!

“Jobs for Youth – Jobs for All!” Is the theme of this year's People's World Amistad Awards rally to be held Sunday, December 4, 2011 at 4 pm at Cooperative Arts and Humanities High School, 177 College Street, New Haven.

Cultural presentations by New Haven high school students will be featured, including music, dance and poetry. Recognition will be made of the Youth March for Jobs held last week in New Haven.

The event will celebrate the contributions and example of three Connecticut leaders who challenge economic inequality and are in the forefront of organizing for jobs, health care and opportunities for youth:

Renae Reese, director of the Connecticut Center for a New Economy and past director of ConnectiCOSH.

Delphine Clyburn, New England 1199 steward, Newhallville neighborhood organizer and Alderwoman-elect in Ward 20,

Pastor Abraham Hernandez, Interfaith Fellowship for Universal Health Care, and a leader for jobs and political representation in the Puerto Rican and African American community.

The rally will bring people together in hope and unity to reject bigotry and fear and build the growing movement to pass national jobs legislation, rebuild the American Dream and put people before profits.
The annual awards are presented to allies by the People's World on the occasion of the 92nd anniversary of the Communist Party USA.
