More than 1,000 people pledged to “Eat, Shop, Play Crenshaw” during the campaign kick off this past weekend at the ninth annual Taste of Soul festival. The campaign seeks to remind residents and visitors to the Crenshaw Corridor that local businesses are open during construction for the Creshaw/LAX Line.
Metro’s “Experience Trailer” also offered the public more information about the agency’s Project Labor Agreement policy to help low-income residents get work on Metro projects. Also on hand were job coordinators for the Regional Connector project, Crenshaw/LAX Transit Corridor Constructors, as well as other smaller Project Labor Agreement contractors. Metro’s information table featured members of Metro’s African American Employees Assn., as well as volunteers who welcomed to our exhibit space.
