Wheeling's Heroes by Jamie Lester, the First State CapitolWALS Foundation Will Host “Jobs First Agenda” Community Discussion Series Rochambeau August 30, 2017 Starting Thursday, September 7 at 7 pm, the WALS Foundation will present: The “Jobs First Agenda” Community Discussion Series at the First State Capitol at 1413 Eoff Street in Wheeling. This free program series will explore a new economic narrative based on the fundamental idea that anyone who wants to work should have the right to a living wage job. From that starting point, we will explore whether and how we can we collaborate, locally, regionally, and nationally, to create a nonpartisan Philosophy of Action that can facilitate the pursuit of a Just Economic life for all Americans. Community and expert panelists for each class in the series will be announced at the first session on September 7. Each class will address how a Jobs First Agenda might impact the topics listed, and each discussion will begin at 7 PM on the following Thursday evenings: Sept. 7: “IF AND HOW?” Exploring a New Narrative Sept. 14: Deficits and a Simplified Tax Code Sept. 21: Infrastructure Repair and Coal Jobs Oct. 5: Climate Change and a New Energy Economy Oct 19: War and Global Terrorism Oct. 26: Immigration and Refugee Woes Nov. 2: Racial Tensions and Gender Inequality Nov. 16: Drug addiction and Opioid Abuse Nov. 30: Rebuilding and Revitalizing Communities Dec. 7: Revolutionizing Education The WALS Foundation is a non-profit community organization established in 2004 to promote educational programming and consulting in the areas of education, employment, local history and preservation, energy, and the environment; and, in doing so, to promote local economic opportunity, employment, and job creation in the city of Wheeling and state of West Virginia.
