Title

Un Appello Agli Italiani di Questa Sezione / An Appeal to the People of this Community. New York, New York: AFSCME (American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees), 1936.

Description

This flyer was printed recto only on newsprint with two columns of text, one in Italian the other in English. It gives an announcement for a community meeting to be held at Public School 45 in the Bronx, Friday, December 11, 1936.

Sponsored by the American Federation for State, County, and Municipal Employees, the meeting was to bring the attention of taxpayers and the unemployed to a Civil Service Examination bringing the loss of jobs to thousands of Home Relief Employees.

In December 1931, when the effects of the Great Depression required an emergency response, the Home Relief Bureau was created under the Governorship of Franklin D. Roosevelt, to bring assistance to the most needy residents of New York. Home Relief was a precursor to many New Deal programs that Roosevelt enacted during his presidency.
