In an effort to create a positive impact in the lives of men and women experiencing varying levels of hardship, Insights Marketing, BMS and Lancesoft in partnership with Hosea Helps presented the Insights Community Impact and Outreach Day Luncheon on Monday, October 14, at The Gateway Center in Downtown Atlanta.

More than an event, this initiative, led by Keshia Walker, Insights Marketing president and Hosea Helps board member, provided people in need with gifted with backpacks filled with survival kits, antibacterial wipes, pajamas, deodorant, socks, gloves, flashlights and more.

Additionally, job readiness training, free haircuts, free shoes, business attire, clothing and a hot meal courtesy of Big Daddy’s, were also available.

The outpouring of love was done in conjunction with The National Minority Supplier Development Council® (NMSDC®) National Conference that kicked off at the culmination of the 49th Annual Atlanta Pride Festival weekend. Insights Marketing is headquartered in Atlanta, GA and their entire company passionately gives back in the Metro-Atlanta community.

East Oakland Organizer Needed

The East Oakland Stadium Alliance (EOSA) is seeking an Oakland-based grassroots organizer for a short-term engagement to help grow and mobilize our coalition! Comprised of local businesses, workers, labor organizations, and community members, we are deeply concerned about the Oakland A’s proposal to leave the Coliseum site in East Oakland and build a new stadium at the port. An ideal candidate has on-the-ground campaign field experience, a strong awareness of Oakland and Alameda County political figures, and deep ties to East and West Oakland communities. Being a local resident of Oakland is a plus.

Employment with EOSA is a part-time role and will last for a minimum of four months with an opportunity to extend longer. Transportation and cell phone use would be reimbursed and candidates of color are strongly encouraged to apply.

If interested, please send a cover letter and resume to Emily Penrod, emily.penrod@deweysquare.com. For more info about EOSA, visit our website and check us out on Twitter @AllianceOakland.
