My name is C [name redacted]. I am a student at Columbia University's Journalism School and I am also working with the Brooklyn Ink this semester. I am currently working on a story about unemployment in Brooklyn and I came across your "Unemployed Brooklyn" website.
I was wondering, do you currently know anyone (personally or otherwise) who fits into the following categories (note: they need to fit all criteria):
- Lives in Brooklyn (it doesn't matter where)
- Is middle class
- Has been unemployed for 2 years or less
- Has a family
- Is college educated. (i.e. at least some college experience)
What do you say? Can you lend a hand to our intrepid reporter? Message me if you are able and I'll pass you along to C.
