United Tribes of Bristol Bay’s win at the Supreme Court, which refused to reverse the EPA’s decision to deny Pebble Mine in Alaska -
GREEN JOBS: RESOURCES & APPLICATIONS
We will be talking about the importance of good local jobs, which are so important for economic self-sufficiency. Too many of our neighborhoods have been neglected, environmental sacrifice zones for too long. Green jobs will bring the change we need for environmental and economic justice.
Our guests today are founders of Soulful Synergy, Dwayne Norris and Alex Alvarez, and Paul Presendieu, and a Eco-Logic Collective member, who is the Director of Community Engagement. From reusing material to growing food, to making buildings efficient and constructing green buildings, to recycling cloth to working with State agencies and high schools, Soulful Synergy has worked for 10 years to bring climate-friendly resources to communities in Westchester and throughout our area. They have trained more that 9,000 people. You'll even hear a connection to David Rothenberg’s WBAI show Any Saturday.
In our news and announcements section we will bring you NYC Audubon's latest Harbor Herons report. Herons capture the imagination – Japanese animation legend Hayao Miyazaki just won his first Golden Globe Award for The Boy and the Heron. We have news on the NYS Right to Repair bill that just went into effect, New Jersey‘s extended producer responsibility bill that includes Electronic Vehicle batteries, and the United Tribes of Bristol Bay’s win at the Supreme Court, which refused to reverse the EPA’s decision to deny Pebble Mine in Alaska.
We have inspiring music for you: Mavis Staples singing Change, a collaboration between her and Ben Harper.
