Pride Roc, a community based organization, was hosted by the Laborers Union, Kori Jamison, and myself to discuss duties of a Laborer, requirements for joining the union, and toured the Laborers training center. Pride ROC was founded in direct response to the violence, poverty, and despair turning some of the city’s communities into war zones. They brought a group of 5 young men ranging in age from 19-25 who were excited about all the construction industry has to offer after our tour. The group was focused on immediate employment.
