This week, Green For All welcomes our new leader: Phaedra Ellis-Lamkins!
This change in leadership reflects a larger transition for Green For All - and this movement. Together, we are moving from hope to change, from INSPIRATION to IMPLEMENTATION.
Implementation means turning BILLIONS of Economic Recovery dollars into actual green jobs for the folks in our streets and neighborhoods.
Watch Phaedra and Van Jones (now Special Advisor for Green Jobs to the White House!)
talk about this transition.
Then join us in implementation - starting with a Conference Call next week: Grassroots Action Toward a Green Recovery for All.
Phaedra comes to Green For All from San Jose, California, where she was the head of the South Bay AFL-CIO Labor Council and Working Partnerships USA. She helped to expand health care access in San Jose and across California. She also helped to raise the minimum wage for low-income families in the South Bay - twice.
