Maryland’s Department of Labor is preparing to launch the Maryland Works for Wind program, a new apprenticeship model to support the region’s growing offshore wind industry funded with $22.9 million awarded to the state through the American Rescue Plan Good Jobs Challenge grant. In partnership with leading employers—including Chesapeake Shipbuilding, Crystal Steel Fabricators, US Wind, and Orsted Offshore North America—and seven local unions, the Maryland Works for Wind program will build a training model to meet the needs of employers and local communities.  At this program, the Business Network for Offshore Wind will give an overview of Offshore Wind, what it will look like in Maryland, and the types of jobs expected to be needed. We will hear from training partner – Jane Addams Resource Corporation, and a labor representative about entry into apprenticeships that will lead to family sustaining employment in the sector.

Over the last two decades, waves of immigrants have made rural communities their homes. This shift, however, has not been easy, with some communities experiencing racist, anti-immigrant backlash. Join this webinar to learn from three organizers and movement builders about how they are fighting back against discrimination and the exploitation of immigrant communities while building immigrant and worker power in rural areas.

Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees is hosting this program in partnership with Maryland Philanthropy Network, Forefront, SoCal Grantmakers, and Neighborhood Funders Group - Integrated Rural Strategies Group and Midwest Organizing Infrastructure Funders.
