Rep. Robin Kelly Hosts Youth Summit

Chicago’s 2nd Congressional District Representative Robin Kelly (D) hosted a two-pronged youth event today on Chicago’s South Side.
It was a Youth Summit to address violence, paired with a Job Expo for young men and women between the ages of 15 and 21.
WGN reporter Gaynor Hall moderated the event.
More than a thousand participants had registered, and more than 50 companies and agencies were on-site to accept job applications.
The consensus on violence was verbalized by Congresswoman Kelly, who quoted the panel by saying, “It takes a village… .”

Following the summit, workshops focused on job interview skills, resume writing, financial responsibility and building positive work habits.

    YOU ALL KNOW that the BIGGEST part of of the cause of all this violence is NO JOBS, and little LARGE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT throughout the South Side!

    R A H M (Our Mayor) has it within HIS POWER to EASILY create 10,000 New Permanent Jobs on the South Side — BUT HE W O N ' T…..

    Not " HE C A N ' T " — The Mayor C O U L D (Easily), but The Mayor " W O N ' T " –
    and Black People continue to DIE because of it EVERY SINGLE DAY…….

    And WHY won't Mr. Mayor Emanuel create those 10,000 New Jobs on the South Side:

    P O L I T I C S ! ! ! Letting your Children Die………

    I wish I could talk to Andrew Holmes about this, please contact me if you should read this Mr. Holmes.
