Green Jobs and Green Agenda for People of Color

Finally! An environmental event with a diverse cast of characters! I am usually one of a handful of African Americans at these types of events, but this one promises to be different!

Green For All is hosting a green, poverty busting, social justice focused event titled, "The Dream Reborn: The Conference". The event will be held April 4-6 (the weekend of the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King) in Memphis, Tennessee. There will be a wide range of speakers from diverse cultural, social and occupational backgrounds. Scientists, community activists, preachers, hip hop artists, educators and organic chefs are just some of the individuals that will be speaking. On the agenda- workshops, entertainment, food, unity and solutions. Want to learn more about "the green jobs" that the politicians are talking about? How climate change impacts us? Healthy food supplies for our community? This seems like the place to be. I will be there. Will you?
