Thank you to our ROJS News readers and supporters as on Thursday, May 3, 2012, we received notice from Democracy For America head writer Monica RW won scholarship to attend the Netroots Nation Conference June 6-10th in Providence, Rhode Island.
To attend this awesome conference we're are starting a donation drive today, as attendees must cover travel and lodging resources. ROJS News has estimated our accommodation and travel expenses at $700.00.
All remaining funds left over from our trip to Netroots Nation Conference used to support ROJS News & Radio Independent-Left Media resources. Any amount donated would be greatly appreciated and we've linked our PayPal donation button below.
Working on causes impacting Michigan's longest unemployed job seekers, we stood along Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-California) in February 2011 in support of HR-589, a measure to extend 14 weeks of unemployment benefits to exhausted federal and state job seekers claimants.
We launched another support resource for 99ers (long-term unemployed job seekers) we started ROJS Radio LIVE (originally Reach Out Job Search Radio) July 2011. Coming upon our 116 of our weekend based program on Saturday, May 12, 2012 @ 11:00 AM ET, its' truly been an amazing ride and its been a honor to have our listeners share this with us.
ROJS Radio LIVE added one of the best TRUTH TALKERS in Michigan & National political discussions when we added Battle Creek Political Activist Extraordinaire Autumn Smith as Co-Host of the program.
Known for her highly successful one woman campaign winning a fight to have recall petition language approved against Speaker of the Michigan House Jase Bolger (R-Marshall) against powerful Lansing, Michigan law firm Dykema/Gottlieb.
