On September 24th, Green For All hosted a celebratory "All Green Everything Party" with rapper Common at The Park nightclub in Washington D.C.
What an exciting way to end an eventful week, and an eventful year! The week leading up to the party was filled with panels, brain trusts, and receptions for the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) Foundation's Annual Legislative Conference.
The All Green Everything Party brought together supporters of the green jobs movement, Congress members, artists, and Green For All staff and fellows, to celebrate the successes of our movement – in style.
After opening remarks by Phaedra Ellis-Lamkins and shout-outs to Green For All by Common, the audience watched Common perform some of his best hits, including "The Light".
Several hundred supporters mingled, danced, watched Common perform, and took photos to show visible support for the movement we're building together.

As Emma Goldman said,
A revolution without dancing is not a revolution worth having.
