Justice Ministry Announcement
The Research committee Kick-off on Tuesday night was a great success.  Our newest project will involve all the Florida D.A.R.T. justice ministries working together on problems related to mass incarceration. The Jobs Committee is continuing to work to get the Jobs Ordinance passed for the unemployed in Broward County.  If you, or anyone you know would be willing to speak about being unemployed at either the December 10 Broward County Commission meeting or the Nehemiah Action in April, please talk to either Donna or Pastor David.  We will keep you informed of the meeting dates as they occur.  Last week we asked you to sign a letter to be delivered to the Commissioners.  If you haven’t done that, please do.  The letters are at each entrance to the sanctuary.  A Bold Justice member will be there to help you.
