On Friday, September 21, 2012, Green For All will once again partner with Congressman Emanuel Cleaver, Chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, to host the Congressman’s issue forum at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s 42nd Annual Legislative Conference. The panel entitled, The Truth About the Green Economy: The Job Killing Agenda and Who’s Standing Behind It, will address who’s standing in the way of moving the green economy forward, highlight facts about job growth and green economy, and talk about the deliberate attack on the movement and strategies to respond.
The discussion will feature Congressman Cleaver, who represents Missouri’s 5th congressional district; MSNBC Commentator Jeff Johnson; Gilbert Campbell, Co-Owner of Volt Energy and a member of Green For All’s Sustainable Business Network; and Danielle Dean, Director of the Energy and Environment Program at The Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies.
Since 2010, Green For All has hosted panels, receptions and other events to highlight the green economy at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s Legislative Conference. This year’s conference will take place from Wednesday, September 19th thru Saturday, September 22nd.
