*This meeting will kick off two days of dialogue among national and grassroots jobs creation advocates, for the purpose of developing a coordinated national strategy. An afternoon session, the same day, will address activity moving the coalition forward---participation would be welcomed and appreciated!
The National Jobs for All Coalition is dedicated to the propositions that meaningful employment is a precondition for a fulfilling life and that every person capable of working should have the right to a job. The Coalition not only fights to make these propositions facts of life, but it publishes invaluable research by noted scholars to support them.
