Jerome Ringo – Color of Green: The Next Inconvenient Truth

Green economy African-American leader Jerome Ringo stands witness to the gravity of the current global environmental crisis and domestic economic decline, and illuminates the path to forge a coalition to deliver policies that will help build a prosperous green economy. It’s an economy that grows on a trellis of social justice and equity, matching the people who most need work with the work that most needs doing. Ringo suggests we build the economy by repairing our damaged world and restoring equity, jobs and justice for all.

This speech was part of the 2009 Bioneers National Conference and is part of the Re-Imagining Labor in a Green Economy Vol. 1 Collection.
