#Bethere2015 for the 2015 I’ll Be There Awards

Fifteen years ago, a small group of courageous labor leaders and community volunteers united to help local parking garage attendants win a union contract and sustainable, improved working conditions. Through their vision, DC Jobs with Justice was born along with the mission to protect and advance the rights of DC area workers. On 10.15.15, our community will come together to celebrate 15 years of DC Jobs with Justice at our annual fundraiser, the I’ll Be There Awards! This year’s event will be the biggest, most inspiring evening we’ve hosted because…. 1) We will honor and “roast” the career of our visionary founder, President Joslyn Williams of the Metropolitan Washington Labor Council, AFL-CIO! 2) We will honor the incredible impact of local leaders Courtney Stewart, Reverend Kendrick Curry, and Jean-Louis Ikambana! Talk about major community leaders developing the leadership and dignity of our local youth, returning citizens, and Black communities!!! 3) Eugene Puryear and Tiffany Flowers of the Stop Police Terror Project DC and #BlackLivesMatter are MC’ing this year and well, they’re kind of a big deal! 4) Incredible live performances to lift us up by DC’s very own funk, reggea, rock band Nappy Riddem, and John Harris. 5) Complimentary Shrimp cocktail. Sushi. Empanadas. Cheeses, fruits, chocolate, champagne….. need I say more? RSVP for the event here on FB today!
