The Bold Justice Jobs Committee is reminding everyone who is daytime available to attend the Broward County Commission meeting April 8 at 2:00 p.m.  We will all come dressed in red shirts or red blouses to these meeting and sit together to show the Bold Justice power in numbers.  The address of the Broward County Governmental Center in Fort Lauderdale is 115 South Andrews Avenue and the telephone number is 954-357-6789.  When you enter the building, tell the guard that you are going to the Commission meeting.  He will direct you to go to the 4th floor.  Be prepared to show identification.  You will then go through a safety checkpoint before entering the commission chambers.   It is extremely important now that we show our support to Commissioner Holness and this Workforce Investment Ordinance.
