Help Southwest Key Create Jobs!

Dear Friends,
Please help us and support Southwest Key’s request for funds to create green jobs!

Send an email to the Austin City Council and Community Development Commission to encourage them to fund Southwest Key’s job creation program.

What Is happening:
Southwest Key has started several companies that are creating jobs and developing job skills for the 21st century.  We have applied for a start-up grant with the City of Austin to support this work.  Time is running out: the City’s Community Development Commissioners will vote on July 12, so they need to hear from you by email that this project is a priority this year.  We are starting this in Austin, but plan to roll it out into other parts of the country, so we need your support and emails, no matter where you live.

Why is this important?
By creating green jobs and training programs, Southwest Key is not only putting people back to work, but also helping businesses and families use our planet’s resources more wisely.  Helping Southwest Key secure program funds will strengthen the program, which is good for all of us, no matter where you live!

What you can do:
Before next Monday, July 12, send an email to the CDC Commission via this online form at www.cityofaustin.org/connect/email_nhcd.htm and to the Austin City Council Members via this online form at http://www.ci.austin.tx.us/council/groupemail.htm encouraging them to support Southwest Key’s request for funds for its job creation project.  It will only take 5 minutes of your time but could make such a huge impact!

We thank you for all you do for Southwest Key and the families we serve!

Joella Brooks
Deputy Executive Director

Dear Community Development Commissioners and Council Members:

I support Southwest Key Programs efforts to provide employment and job training through their Social Enterprises project and grant request.  New jobs and workforce development will strengthen our community, helping individuals and families prosper, and will help to attract additional investment to the city.

Thank you for your consideration of this important venture,

Your name
