I developed this piece in 2007 in response to the false promises of the booming multi-billion dollar "green" market. The piece is a commentary on what sustainability really means for our communities, our movements, and our environment. Immigrant workers and people of color are often left out of decision making, while working in some of the most toxic industries in the country. Green jobs and healthier communities, can not be just a luxury for affluent whites. They are a necessity for working class people and communities of color.

 

The words on thise piece were inspired by a fantastic article by Van Jones, "The New Environmentalists: How to Make the Green Movement Less White," published in Colorlines Magazine in 2007.
