Green for All
Green For All says it
". . . is dedicated to building an inclusive green economy strong enough to lift people out of poverty.
Fires, floods and foreclosures are the latest signs that we are caught in twin crises: economic downturn and environmental devastation. But a shift to green economic development — creating millions of jobs in the emerging "clean and green" economy — can lead the entire country to a safer, healthier future.
Such a shift would create countless new opportunities. Low-income communities and communities of color have borne the brunt of the failures of the poisonous, old, "grey" economy. We want to remedy that — and make sure they get equal access to the opportunity inherent in the new green one.
If we do this right, we could save the country from its own shortcomings and help it fulfill its long-awaited promise."

Now, the President-elect's new stimulus plan is notable because it shows he's ready to take immediate action for green jobs upon entering office.
