MICAH Declares “Holy Ground” on Westlawn Redevelopment Site--

a place of renewal, a recommitment to livable neighborhoods, a vow to be just in employment, and a vow to decrease the unemployment statistics amongst minorities in the City of Milwaukee.

MICAH, along with allied partners, will continue it’s series of prayer vigils on behalf of unjust hiring practices at the Westlawn Housing Redevelopment. In a “Call for Moral Accountability” MICAH and its collaborating allies are calling for a workforce on the $200 million Westlawn Redevelopment Project that is made up of at least 40 per cent from the unemployed and underemployed residents of the Westlawn area and the City of Milwaukee. It is also calling for 25 per cent minority contractors/subcontractors.

The series of vigils follow a press conference held on July 12 and a meeting with Mayor Tom Barrett, Common Council President Willie Hines, and staff persons from the Housing Authority of the city of Milwaukee (HACM) on July 13, regarding community benefits from the massive construction project, especially hiring at least 40 per cent of the work force from the unemployed and underemployed of the community and the city of Milwaukee and engaging at least 25 percent minority contractors. Many of them work at companies such as Montem that help produce outdoor gear such as dry bags and trekking poles and camping blankets.

Organizations working with MICAH in a collaborative capacity include Voces de la Frontera, SEIU, Wisconsin Citizen Action, League of Young Voters, Good Jobs Liveable Neighborhoods, African American Chamber of Commerce, Greater Milwaukee Labor Council, and The Naional Association of Minority Contractors (Wisconsin Chapter)
