Excerpt from Examiner.com

Panelists during the CBC Town Hall on the economy, jobs

The Town Hall on Jobs and the Economy, held during the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, Inc. 41st Legislative Conference yesterday, featured panelists who fleshed out some of the continuing economic challenges related to jobs, and offered some solutions for communities and businesses alike. It is often impossible to set aside politics and rhetoric when attending any conference hosted by elected officials, especially in Washington. While political sentiments bubbled to the surface at times, there were several cogent points made about the country’s lack of jobs and possible solutions to overcome the effects of the economy.

Moderated by former Secretary of Labor, Alexis Herman, the session opened with greetings from ranking Democrat, and former speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi. Panelists included Congressman Emanuel Cleaver II, BET founder and entrepreneur Bob Johnson, former AFSCME leader Bill Lucy, Economist Julianne Malveaux, National Urban League President Marc Morial, and Congresswoman Maxine Waters.

Judge Karen, Steve Wilkos headline Destination Occupation Expo in DC

In just the first hour, more than 500 Washington, DC area residents walked through the doors of the Walter Washington Convention Center last Friday to seek out job opportunities, explore educational options, and gain tips on everything from creating a better resume to a fashion show hosted by Dress for Success

The highlights of the Destination Occupation Expo, hosted by DC 50 television station, were the keynote speeches by Judge Karen Mills-Francis, of the popular show, Judge Karen’s Court and Steve Wilkos of The Steve Wilkos Show.

Known for her signature blonde tresses and a propensity to allow litigants to cross-examine one another while pleading their cases on television, Judge Karen brought the same sensibility that viewers witness on her show: use the challenges you face to make you stronger.

During my interview with Judge Karen, she emphasized that one of the most important factors in dealing with life’s changes, including job loss, is to have hope, a message she underscored during her speech to the hundreds of job seekers in attendance.

Judge Karen opens up a bit about some of the challenges she has overcome during her career, including running for judge in Miami-Dade County without support from entities that typically endorse a candidate. With little financial backing and the tough challenge of appealing to an entire county versus a district, Judge Karen faced some tough odds. “It was the toughest challenge I ever had,” she said. While she ended up winning, and being elected to a second term, Judge Karen noted that if she did not have hope, the outcome might have been very different.

Urging participants in the Destination Occupation Expo to stay committed to their goals, Judge Karen said that with hope and motivation, people can move from “being victims to victors.”

Widely known for his former role as director of security for the Jerry Springer Show, Steve Wilkos, host of the Steve Wilkos Show, spoke to participants who attended the expo.
