Dear fellow Americans,
Late last night, Van Jones resigned from his position with the White House . Many of us are left with pain and anger after seeing a leader of integrity, vision, and commitment targeted by hateful . Van stepped down in service to our movement. He felt that fighting the attacks would draw attention to him and detract from our mission.
Now, our challenge is to turn our disappointment and anger into action and renewed resolve for our common goals.
Like the great of the 20th century, our movement for an inclusive green economy is based in the most fundamental American values: equality, justice, and opportunity for all.
That's why our opponents reduced the debate to fear, hatred, and division. They cannot win a debate about values. They cannot win a debate about solutions. Our allies and friends may be redirected by these attacks, and focus on the rants of those who fear our vision.
For Green For All, our struggle must be defined by the issues our opponents refuse to debate: ending ; lifting people out of poverty; restoring the economy; and bringing health to our communities. These are the challenges that matter the most.
This moment reaffirms our commitment and makes us more steadfast in pushing for our goals, including a climate bill that delivers on the promise of a clean-energy economy. We will not be led astray. We will not let our anger cloud our vision.
Instead, it is the time to come together around the values our movement stands for: clean air; healthy communities; good jobs; and opportunity for all. Please sign our Petition in support of the Green Jobs Movement. Then pass it on to 10 friends.
Let's use this opportunity to grow in numbers and strength. In the face of tactics intended to frighten and divide, we must stand strong around our core values and renew our commitment to our shared vision. Thank you for taking a stand with us. Phaedra Ellis-Lamkins Chief Executive Officer Green For All
LET THE REVOLUTION BEGIN!
Live your values. Love your country.
And, remember: TOGETHER, We can make a DIFFERENCE!
