The Blue Green Alliance was formed by the Steelworkers Union and the Sierra Club in 2006. Recently, the Communication Workers of America (CWA), the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and the Laborers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA) announced that they were joining the Blue Green Alliance. By joining forces, the Alliance now unites more than 6 million people working to create a Green Economy based on justice and fairness.
The Alliance is a strong advocate of a Green Economic Recovery:
“If we invest $100 billion into six green strategies, we project it will create 2 million jobs“
This is a real movement growing to make change, to make a new future. This is the path to economic recovery, sustainable growth and economic fairness. More, after the fold.
