We desire to serve the most critical needs of our fellow human beings, especially those that are frequently overlooked. We are passionate and ready to embrace opportunity and apply innovation in pursuit of the public good. The “Wasteland” where hopelessness resides can become a “Field of Dreams” for today’s marginalized youth and impoverished communities.

Why Care

“Countless people want to make a living and have a reason to live.” 

“American’s have lost their freedom to the Pandemic- We know how it feels to lose life as we know it. 

“With employment and opportunity, goodness will come. Without employment and opportunity, all of society will suffer.

Covid-19 Response

OUR COVID-19 STRATEGY
This pandemic has taught us that America cannot depend on other nations to manufacture our basic necessities; most especially- medical supplies and equipment. We must build a medical infrastructure that protects our most vulnerable. If properly implemented, our strategies can provide immediate help to the public health sector and this nation’s paralyzed workforce.

“When you work with love you bind yourself to yourself, and to one another, and to God.” – Khalil Gibran

OUR LABOR OF LOVE, LLC exists to recruit, train, and field a workforce of community health officers who test, contact, trace, and build healthier communities. Density Kills but our initiatives can save lives and result in healthier communities. Over 50% of coronavirus deaths are Black, Latino and poor persons. These fellow human beings also suffer from health disparities (diabetes, asthma, heart disease, etc.). Given their poor health status, the deadly and disproportionate impact from the pandemic was both predictable and preventable. The morbidity and mortality data clearly establishes that Blacks, Latinos, and poor people living in overcrowded urban areas will continue to be target #1 for this and future deadly viruses.

THE PANDEMIC AND UNEMPLOYMENT
The unemployment rate in America stands at over 33 million- this unsustainably high level of joblessness across America has always been present in urban Black, and Latino communities. The time to do something groundbreaking is now!

OLOL can recruit, train, and deploy thousands of previously unemployed people in the fight against COVID 19. Our team has focused on the intersectionality of poverty, the justice system, economic development, and post-pandemic opportunities in America. Our solution-based and non-bureaucratic approach recognizes the need to involve those directly affected by the experiences of poverty and marginalization in developing solutions.

OUR WORKFORCE WILL BE RECRUITED FROM WITHIN OUR COMMUNITIES
• Thousands of employer-sponsored temporary visa-holders are not eligible for unemployment benefits and at risk of deportation because COVID19 has forced them to become unemployed. They have family members that were born in America. OLOL is ready to join the local and national lawyers associations’, and network of employers to resolve the employment and immigration issue and enlist the visa-holders into our army.

• Thousands of college students need summer jobs and school service credits. OLOL is ready to work with CUNY/SUNY and other colleges and universities to enlist these vital resources into our workforce.

• Thousands of justice-involved individuals have community service obligations– OLOL is ready to enlist these citizens into our workforce as paid workers and volunteers.

• Thousands of other unemployed citizens are ready to engage.

Once recruited, OLOL will collaborate with at least one leading public health institute to train our skilled workforce in all aspects of testing, contact-tracing, and pandemic related issues.
