Thursday: Job Fair, Anti-Violence March & Forum

Plainfield young people have led the way in calling
for an end to violence.

Plainfield will see two important opportunities Thursday:
a jobs fair at City Hall and a march and forum against violence.

The jobs fair, long in the planning, is hosted by Mayor Adrian Mapp jointly with the United States Postal Service. It takes place from 4:00 - 7:00 PM at City Hall.

Though Plainfield's jobless rate has fallen in recent months, unemployment and under-employment have long been an issue. The postal service has many kinds of job openings -- not just letter carriers -- so interested parties should check it out.

The evening will see a march and forum concerning violence. The march begins at 5:00 PM at West 4th Street and Rock Avenue, proceed to Leland Avenue and then to the High School, where a forum is scheduled from 7:00 - 9:00 PM. More information on the city's website here.
