Latino Caucus Green Jobs Summit Address by Orson Aguilar

Greenlining Executive Director Orson Aguilar emphasized in his remarks that the green economy is not just about jobs, but also an opportunity for Latino and other communities color to generate wealth.  In order to protect our communities from future boom-bust cycles, communities of color, including Latino communities, need a broad economic stimulus designed to address our diverse economic needs.  Our stimulus must cover the full spectrum, from entry-level, unskilled jobs to business ownership and growth opportunities in cutting-edge market sectors.
