Green for All's new national director on environmental equity

Sep 10, 2018

The Global Climate Action Summit will be hosted here in San Francisco. World leaders will evaluate how far we’ve come since the Paris Agreement. The three-day event is co-chaired Governor Jerry Brown.

Al Gore will be there along with Dolores Huerta. Libby Schaaf and London Breed will be joined by the mayors of Paris and New York. Secretaries and senators, prime ministers and presidents. It’s a big deal.

One featured speaker is Van Jones, former “Green Jobs Czar” in Barack Obama’s White House, and founder of Oakland’s Green for All, which advocates simultaneously for clean energy and job production. Green for All named a new National Director this month: Michelle Romero.

"We're all Flint. We need to make sure we're standing up for those communities so there are no more Flints."

KALW’s Ben Trefny sat down to talk with her and asked where we can see examples of the green economy in effect in the Bay Area.
