Resource Fair to Address Santa Monica Zip Code Inequities

Community Corporation of Santa Monica is hosting an employment resource fair this evening to help connect residents with the jobs and services they may be seeking. Held at Virginia Park, the event highlights the disproportionate ways that the city is distributed.

“According to the City’s 2015 Wellbeing Project, unemployment levels in 90404, 90401 and 90405 are higher than the US average,” explained Ayde Gonzalez, Director of Residents Services for Community Corp.

“Unemployment is a community issue and as members of this community we want bring awareness to the amazing organizations working here in Santa Monica and in the surrounding area that are experts in employment searches, career guidance, skill development and vocational training,” she said.

The fair, in partnership with the City of Santa Monica, hopes to connect service providers, educators and non-profits; including Chrysalis, the Hospitality Training Academy, JVS, Santa Monica College, WISE & Healthy Aging, and Antioch University, among others.
