OAKLAND, Calif. – Today, Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis announced that she will be stepping down from her post as Secretary of Labor.

Statement of Green For All CEO Phaedra Ellis-Lamkins

Secretary Solis has been a tireless champion for American workers, environmental justice, and green jobs. By securing federal funding for green jobs training programs, she helped countless Americans find new careers and pathways into the middle class.

Under her leadership, the green economy has grown, and an estimated 3.1 million Americans now work in green jobs. We need our next Secretary of Labor to continue Hilda Solis’ strong legacy of advocating for American workers, and good, green jobs that leave a healthier future for our kids.
