Diversity Job Fair and Financial Advocacy and Community Tour to Minneapolis
Posted on January 17, 2013
While our economy may be recovering nationally, we know communities of color are recovering at a more stagnant rate with disproportionately high unemployment, limited access to economic resources and growing economic inequality. To help meet our communities’ demand for jobs, economic resources and financial literacy, we are hosting a NAACP Diversity Job Fair along with a Financial Advocacy and Community Tour (F.A.C.T.) in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Employers as well as non-profits and financial institutions will be in attendance and available to connect you with opportunities for building your economic security.
The Financial Advocacy and Community Tour (F.A.C.T.) and the Region IV NAACP Diversity Job Fair will be held in Minneapolis, Minnesota on January 21, 2013 at the Minneapolis Convention Center from 9am-3pm. The job fair will have employers from across Minneapolis and beyond as well as the Office of Veteran’s Affairs and VetJobs.com--who will be actively, recruiting for opportunities for Veterans in the area will be present at the job fair.

At F.A.C.T., come gain access to hands-on expertise through financial planners, HUD certified counselors, representatives from financial institutions and non-profit economic advocacy organizations. The tour provides valuable information to individuals and families and raises awareness around the facts about racial economic inequality, today’s structural economic challenges, repairing credit, job training, increasing and maintaining homeownership and building wealth.
This year marks the second year of the FACT tours. The inaugural year was a tremendous success as our tour exposed over a thousand NAACP members and the community to valuable resources needed to address economic challenges that may be directly or indirectly affecting their community, family or themselves.

We look forward to seeing you at the NAACP Diversity Job Fair and FACT! Start off this new year by equipping yourself with economic empowerment opportunities and taking these resources back to your community!
