Starting this September, Groundwork will hold an intensive 6-week workshop that’s open to all community members. The workshop examines how racism and white privilege affect lives, communities, institutions, and movements for social justice, while developing strategies for prioritizing racial justice both individually and collectively. Childcare is provided. There is a cost, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Visit groundworkmadison.com for more info.
Literacy Network announces the “Dressed for Success” program with special funding from the United Way of Dane County. For many community members, a major barrier to securing employment is a lack of appropriate work attire. Literacy Network hosts a Dressed for Success “store” featuring lightly used or new business clothing and work apparel donated by our community. Adults who meet program requirements will shop for free work clothing. You can help by making a donation of men’s and women’s business casual clothing as well as clothing for labor and construction jobs. Donations are accepted 8:30am to 5pm, Monday through Thursday at 1118 South Park Street. More info at 608-244-3911
