May 19th Action: Fund Youth Jobs

With a Summer Youth Employment Program that will place nearly 10,000 young people in the workplace this summer and an expected growth to 15,000 in 2009, Mayor Fenty and his Administration have made a real investment in the future of the City’s young people. We urge Congress to do the same and make an investment in the young people of our nation, by including $2 billion in the national economic stimulus package for summer youth employment programs.

On May 19, 4pm at the Capitol Reflecting Pool, support legislation that would ensure summer jobs for 3 million young people.
