KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A job fair in the urban core Tuesday hopes to revitalize the highest unemployed part of Kansas City.
The Kansas City Chamber of Commerce's Urban Neighborhood Initiative is partnering with Green Impact Zone and Urban League to bring jobs to the inner city.
The job fair is open to urban core residents who live between 22nd Street and 52nd Street, from Paseo to 71 Hwy.
Organizers say the key to prosperity is employment, and the key to employment is opportunity.
"There are a lot of people in the urban core who have talents, have skills and have background experience," UNI Executive Director Dianne Cleaver said. "What they need is a little assistance in getting access to opportunities."
The job fair is from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at St. James United Methodist Church near 55th Street and Paseo.
