Feb 6, 2014
Join us next week for the 2014 Good Jobs, Green Jobs Conference in Washington, DC.
This year's conference is focused on repairing the systems Americans rely on every day, whether getting us back and forth to work, supplying our power, keeping us safe from storms and floods, communicating with police and fire during emergencies, or ensuring the institutions where our children learn are safe and healthy. It's time to repair these systems today to create quality, family-sustaining jobs, to address the threat of climate change, and to ensure the health and safety of our workplaces and our communities.
Participants will spend Feb. 10-11 networking with business, civic, non-profit, union and environmental leaders and in informative and interactive workshops focused on every part of the clean economy. This year's speakers include CWA President Larry Cohen, EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy, Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.), Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune, Rep. Donna Edwards (D-Md.), Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka and more.
