About Green Jobs Now:

Green Jobs Now is a National Day of Action that will empower everyday people to stage hundreds of grassroots events throughout the country. We will have a special focus on low-income communities, communities of color and indigenous people. This will send a message to our leaders that, when it comes to creating green jobs for a more sustainable economy, PEOPLE ARE READY!

About the organizers:
The National Day of Action is being coordinated by our friend Ibrahim Abdul-Matin... check him out online at the Brooklyn Bedouin! The DC Green Jobs Now event advertized above is being organized by our friends at GWIPL and CCAN... check them out, as well!

Green Muslims in the District lend a hand!
Look for more information on the Google group soon, insha'Allah.
