Celebrating Indiana Black Expo’s Summer Celebration
The 41st Annual Indiana Black Expo Summer Celebration is underway. Each year, over 350,000 men, women and children attend this ten-day event located at the Indiana Convention Center and others locations throughout Indianapolis. Indiana Black Expo always offers many opportunities for our community, and this year is no exception. This event is where our greatest minds and most inspiring personalities come together to confront our community’s most pressing needs.
I applaud the Indiana Black Expo board and staff for making this an extraordinarily successful and uplifting event. Their hard work has enabled the Indiana Black Expo Summer Celebration to become a signature event of Indianapolis.
Central Indiana Job Fair
I know how hard it is for Hoosier families in this economy. Far too many suffer the financial and emotional strains of unemployment or underemployment. Creating new jobs and protecting existing American jobs from being sent overseas is my number one priority in Congress. I am also doing everything I can to connect job seekers with companies that are currently hiring. That’s why I am hosting the Central Indiana Job Fair in cooperation with Ivy Tech Community College and IUPUI.
This event will take place on Friday, August 12th from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at IUPUI’s Campus Center in downtown Indianapolis. The job fair will provide attendees with an opportunity to speak with a diverse group of companies from various sectors that are looking to hire new employees here in Central Indiana. I look forward to meeting with job seekers and employers on August 12th.
