”]Wind turbines.  Source: nualabugeye [Flickr]As the Obama Administration directs billions of dollars toward reshaping America’s economy and environment, millions of jobs are part of the plan. But before the current employment shortage, there were many people who already couldn’t find good work—including women, people of color, immigrants and youth. On this edition, we hear from community advocates in Portland, Oregon, who are working to make sure the money in the Green Jobs initiative ends up benefiting those who need it the most.

This program contains segments of a panel discussion presented by the National Radio Project, April 2009, in Portland, Oregon.

Featuring:

Jeremy Hays, Green For All field director; Dawn Jones, journey level carpenter and Oregon Tradeswoman instructor; Jo Ann Bowman, Oregon Action executive director; Francisco Lopez, CAUSA executive director; Alan Hipolito, Verde executive director; Joe Biden, United States Vice-President.
