This year marks the 50th Anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther. While most only remember his famous ” I have a dream speech” few remember the agenda King urged: Jobs and Justice. Join us we elevate King’s message in Annapolis to continue the flight jobs

On Tuesday, March 27th, 2018, the Job Opportunities Task Force (JOTF), Out for Justice, Inc. (OFJ) and partners will descend on Annapolis for our annual lobby day!  We will march to and rally in front of the Maryland State House to urge support for policies that seek to eliminate educational and employment barriers and increase access to JOBS and JUSTICE for all Marylanders.

Attendees can expect to learn more about and meet with legislators around the following topics: Access to Higher Education, Juvenile Justice, Rights for Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated Women, Expungement, Pretrial Services, Child Support Reform, and the Hogan-Zirkin Crime Bill. Additionally, attendees will be encouraged to attend afternoon #JusticeDialogues and committee bill hearings on these issues. Specific information regarding the bill hearings will be released soon.

Breakfast and lunch will be provided. Transportation is available to and from Annapolis. We will have buses leave from various locations in Baltimore CityMontgomery, and Prince George’s Counties. If you are in need of transportation, please fill out this BRIEF survey detailing where you are coming from so we can be sure to have enough locations covered for our attendees.
