The Metropolitan Council and five African-American organizations will hold a business and employment workshop on Wednesday, Oct. 14, regarding the Central Corridor light-rail transit project.

This will be the fifth such meeting in the last year designed for minority and women-owned small businesses or job seekers to learn about job opportunities on the biggest public works project in state history.

The latest session is targeted at African-American business owners and work force advocates who want to ensure African-American inclusion in the Central Corridor’s construction, set to begin in late summer 2010.

The meeting will be held twice on Oct. 14, running from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and again from 6 to 8 p.m., at the Hallie Q. Brown Community Center at 270 N. Kent St. in St. Paul.

To register, contact Jackie Becker at [email protected] or 651-602-1940.

Besides the Met Council, the other sponsors are the Council on Black Minnesotans, Aurora/St. Anthony Neighborhood Development Corp., Selby Area Community Development Corp., African Economic Development Solutions and the St. Paul branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.
