E-mail Print PDF
HIRE Minnesota will stage a funeral procession to mourn the loss of yet another construction season in 2009. We will meet at Lao Family Community of Minnesota and march to the MnDOT headquarters, where we will hold a funeral to grieve for the loss of opportunity for people of color at MnDOT.

A small delegation of HIRE Minnesota members will then proceed inside the MnDOT headquarters to meet with Commissioner Tom Sorel and demand that systems are put in place to bring back hope for better outcomes in 2010! This event will take place on Tuesday, September 29 at 11:30 am - 1 pm. Meet at Lao Family Community of Minnesota, 320 University Avenue W, St. Paul (see map).

Also needed are volunteers to help make this event a success! Please sign up online to volunteer for our Sept. 27 phone bank to make calls to HIRE Minnesota supporters!

We are more powerful with more voices! Please join us to make sure MnDOT hears our call for justice and equity! Please RSVP so we know to expect you.
