It's time for community action

Authors: Julian Mocine-McQueen

Between now and June, your Mayor and local officials must come up with a plan to secure and implement President Obama's Economic Recovery funds.

Does your Mayor have a plan yet? Do you know what that plan is? This may be the most important opportunity you'll ever have to bring green-collar jobs to your community. But the planning process will be over in the blink of an eye, and your community could miss out. That's why we're calling on you to take action now: Ask your Mayor to sign a Commitment to a Green Recovery For All. Organize a rally or a press conference to drive your message home. The Recovery funds can build pathways out of poverty through green-collar job training and employment. But we cannot leave it up to our elected officials and the big developers who have their ear.
That's why you need to get involved in the recovery implementation process where you live. Ask your Mayor and local elected officials to commit to a Green Recovery For All. We've prepared all sorts of tools and resources to help you take action. You can also help by spreading the word about this opportunity. Forward this email, or use our Tell-a-Friend tool. Let's bring home a Green Recovery For All! P.S. This morning Green For All, the NAACP, SEIU, and more than two dozen other civil rights, faith-based, and economic justice organizations announced their membership in the Climate Equity Alliance. Green For All is proud to be a founding member of the national Alliance.
