U.S. Congressman John Conyers is coming to Ohio in conjunction with the Jobs for All National 2015/16 Tour. The Town Hall meetings will feature testimony on the impact of long-term unemployment and poverty on the Columbus community.There will be presentations on job creation, raising the minimum wage, health care and other important issues. The primary goal is to elevate the jobs issue to national prominence.
The visit offers a great opportunity for our community. Rep. Conyers is the longest serving member of the U.S. Congress, and the first African American to serve in this capacity. He represents the Detroit, Michigan area and has been a strong voice for progressive ideas including job creation with his introduction of HR 1000 and health care with HR 676. He is also co-chair of the Full Employment Caucus of the U.S. House of Representatives.
