Roxanne Brown – Blue and Green: Working Together to Secure a Sustainable Future

In this galvanizing talk, Roxanne Brown shows the hallmark of a true coalition builder, connecting her work as a labor leader to the definition of a “bioneer.” Of Jamaican descent and from a line of strong women who made great sacrifices to pursue the American Dream, she understands first-hand that sustainability cannot exist without workplace safety, economic security, and a legacy for future generations.

This speech was given at the 2011 Bioneers National Conference and is part of the Re-Imagining Labor in a Green Economy Vol. 1 Collection.
