#ShapeTheDebate with Michelle Romero, Green For All National Director

Watch the second video in our #ShapeTheDebate series from Green For All National Director Michelle Romero.

We know with certainty that if we invest in a clean-energy economy, we can create pathways to prosperity for millions of Americans, especially in low-income communities and communities of color.

Jobs generated by clean-energy investments will offer opportunities for advancement through training programs and will help newly employed low-income workers lift themselves and their families out of poverty – increasing the resiliency of our planet and our communities. 

Question:

What policies should we pursue to build an inclusive green economy that provides more work, more wealth, and better health for all Americans?

Answer:

  1. Modernize and update our infrastructure
  2. Create job pathways into the green economy
  3. Create good-paying jobs with family sustaining wages
  4. Encourage contracting with women, minority, and veteran owned businesses
  5. Provide #FairChance employment opportunities
