    Rev. Jesse Jackson takes Covid-19 Vaccine

    Scientific community must reach out to African Americans to bolster confidence in vaccine

    On Friday, I received my first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. I was honored to be accompanied by Dr. Kizzmekia Corbett, the brilliant African-American viral immunologist who is a rock star in the field of immunology science.

    From Dr. Corbett’s post at the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, she led the team that performed the scientific miracle of developing and testing the Moderna vaccine in record time. Now she is working to overcome the widespread hesitancy in the black community about vaccination. Vaccination is imperative to save lives, particularly for African Americans, disproportionately the greatest victims of the virus.

    Who does the RPC Atlanta - Peachtree Street Project Service?

    The Citizenship Education Fund established the Peachtree Street Project in Atlanta in 1999 to conduct research and education activities designed to enlighten the public’s understanding of equal opportunity in Southeast. Modeled after the Wall Street Project in New York, the Peachtree Street Project is an initiative of The Citizenship Education Fund (CEF), CEF was founded by Rev. Jesse L. Jackson, Sr. and is a charitable research and education chartered in Ohio and is governed by an independent board of directors.

    The Peachtree Street Project was charged with reviewing corporate social responsibility, with a particular emphasis on performance in the areas of gender, ethnicity and racial inclusion practiced by publicly-traded corporations based in the Southeastern United States. The Peachtree Street Project has previously performed studies of the number of blacks, minorities and women on corporate boards of directors, and reviewed anecdotal evidence regarding diversity and inclusion.

    In the course of conduction its work the Peachtree Street Project regularly reviews diversity rankings published by Fortune, Diversity. Inc. and others. A pattern was observed indication that relatively few firms based in the Southeast were placing significant emphasis on diversity or inclusion. It further appeared that robust programs to accomplish equal opportunity equal opportunity were rare among companies based in the region. This report is an attempt to quantify readily accessible data as a starting point of establishing a benchmark for firms based in the Southeast.

    CONNECTING BUSINESSES, CHURCHES, NON-PROFITS, AND INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS TO LENDERS FOR THE CARES ACT FUNDING

    The Paycheck Protection Program is a loan designed to provide a direct incentive for small businesses to keep their workers on the payroll. SBA will forgive loans if all employee retention criteria are met, and the funds are used for eligible expenses.

    "Am I Eligible for PPP?"

    In order to support America’s small businesses due to COVID-19, the program extends low-interest loans of up to $10 million to eligible businesses, a portion of which may not need to be repaid. If employers maintain their payroll and use loan funds for allowed expenses like payroll, rent, and utilities for the first 8 weeks after the loan is issued, the loan amount is forgiven.

    Loan Forgiveness

    Expenses that will help qualify for Loan Forgiveness are:

    • Number of Staff:
      Your loan forgiveness will be reduced if you decrease your full-time employee headcount.
    • Level of Payroll:
      Your loan forgiveness will also be reduced if you decrease salaries and wages by more than 25% for any employee that made less than $100,000 annualized in 2019.
    • Re-Hiring:
      You have until June 30, 2020 to restore your full-time employment and salary levels for any changes made between February 15, 2020 and April 26, 2020.
    • PPP Loan Terms:
      6-month deferment on payment
      1% APR INTEREST RATE
      24-month LOAN TERM
    What can the money be used for?
    • Cover Payroll Cost/ Expenses
    • Pay Interest on Mortgages incurred before 2/15/2020
    • Pay Rent, under lease agreements in force before 2/15/2020
    • Pay Utilities for services incurred before 2/15/2020
    • Rehire your furloughed employees

    How much can You borrow?

    Most Businesses

    Average monthly payroll for 2019, excluding costs over $100,000 on an annualized basis for each employee

    Small Businesses

    Average monthly payroll from February 15 to June 30, 2019, excluding costs over $100,000 on an annualized basis for each employee

    New Businesses

    Average monthly payroll from January 1 to February 29, 2020, excluding costs over $100,000 on an annualized basis for each employee

    How to defer payments

    You can submit a request to the lender that is servicing the loan. The request should include documents that verify the number of full-time equivalent employees and pay rates, as well as the payments on the eligible mortgage, lease, and utility obligations. You must certify that the documents are true and that you used the forgiveness amount to keep employees and make eligible mortgage interest, rent, and utility payments. The lender must make a decision on forgiveness within 60 days.

    The Biography of
    Reverend Jesse Louis Jackson, Sr.,,
    (1941-)


    Founder & President of
    Rainbow PUSH Coalition

    The Reverend Jesse Louis Jackson, Sr., founder and president of the Rainbow PUSH Coalition, is one of America’s foremost civil rights, religious and political figures. Over the past forty years, he has played a pivotal role in virtually every movement for empowerment, peace, civil rights, gender equality, and economic and social justice. On August 9, 2000, President Bill Clinton awarded Reverend Jackson the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor.

    Reverend Jackson has been called the “Conscience of the Nation” and “the Great Unifier,” challenging America to be inclusive and to establish just and humane priorities for the benefit of all. He is known for bringing people together on common ground across lines of race, culture, class, gender and belief.

    Born on October 8, 1941 in Greenville, South Carolina, Jesse Jackson graduated from the public schools in Greenville and then enrolled in the University of Illinois on a football scholarship. He later transferred to North Carolina A&T State University and graduated in 1964. He began his theological studies at Chicago Theological Seminary but deferred his studies when he began working full-time in the Civil Rights Movement with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. He was ordained on June 30, 1968 by Rev. Clay Evans and received his earned Master of Divinity degree from Chicago Theological Seminary in 2000.

    For his work in human and civil rights and nonviolent social change, Reverend Jackson has received more than 40 honorary doctorate degrees and frequently lectures at major colleges and universities including Howard, Yale, Princeton, Morehouse, Harvard, Columbia, Stanford and Hampton. He was made an Honorary Fellow of Regents Park College at Oxford University in the UK in November 2007, and received an Honorary Fellowship from Edge Hill University in Liverpool, England. In March 2010, Reverend Jackson was inducted into England’s prestigious Cambridge Union Society. In April 2010, he was awarded an honorary doctorate from the University of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa.

    In October 1997, Reverend Jackson was appointed by President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Madeleine Albright as “Special Envoy of the President and Secretary of State for the Promotion of Democracy in Africa”. In this official position, Reverend Jackson traveled to several countries on the African continent and met with such national leaders as President Nelson Mandela of the Republic of South Africa, His Excellency Daniel T. Arap Moi of Kenya, and President Frederick J.T. Chiluba of Zambia.

    Reverend Jackson began his activism as a student in the summer of 1960 seeking to desegregate the local public library in Greenville and then as a leader in the sit-in movement. In 1965, he became a full-time organizer for the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC). He was soon appointed by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to direct the Operation Breadbasket program. In December of 1971, Reverend Jackson founded Operation PUSH (People United to Serve Humanity) in Chicago, IL. The goals of Operation PUSH were economic empowerment and expanding educational, business and employment opportunities for the disadvantaged and people of color.    Read More

    “If my mind can conceive it and my heart can believe it, I can achieve it!,” or the familiar phrase that Rev. Jackson opens many of his talks with students with, “I Am Somebody”. The PUSH Excel principles were adopted by school districts in every region of America by 1980.

    PUSH Excel was recognized by the US Department of Education under President Jimmy Carter and was later touted as one of the most thoughtful and inspirational programs that inspired, black and brown students, to move beyond their circumstances of poverty, violence, and inadequate educational resources to achieve excellence through education and positive community involvement.
