Jobs with Justice Moves Ahead

Our breakfast fund-raiser is set for 8-10 AM Saturday, March 8, at Morelia Restaurant, 2707 W Jefferson in Dallas. We'll be honoring State Representative Roberto Alonzo, who just blew away his opponent with 72% of the March 4th primary vote. We should also take note that March 8 is International Women's Day.

Fourteen activists are selling breakfast tickets, and over $300 has been turned in so far. We're raising money for the people who couldn't otherwise afford to go to the National JwJ conference in Providence, Rhode Island . March 21 is the registration deadline, so we will have to make final commitments by then.

On the evening of March 20, we'll have our drawing for the free movie pass to the AFI Film Festival March 27-April 6 in Dallas. Over 200 movies have been scheduled! The Film Festival donated our certificate for the free pass. Arrangements were made by Brent Herndon.

At present, we have 13 volunteers eager to go to the conference May 2-4 in Providence, Rhode Island. All of us in North Texas will benefit from the education, energizing, and networking they will do. Consequently, all of us should be sharing in the cost. Please contact Gene Lantz to order tickets. Send checks to North Texas Jobs with Justice, Box 225822, Dallas TX 75222. We'll also sell tickets and accept donations at the door.
