Van Jones speaks about Green Jobs in Seattle

From Ray Li at Neighborhood House:

Good morning!

The keynote speech by social and eco activist Van Jones is now available online. Van spoke about Neighborhood House, the High Point Capital Campaign and the promise of a green tomorrow at our Seventh Annual Breakfast Celebration in May. His speech runs about 25 minutes and has been posted to YouTube in three parts.

Part 3: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-yNl9ovwm3o

For those who didn't have the opportunity to hear Van speak, he outlines how green technology can promote social justice in low-income communities, and describes how the High Point Neighborhood Center fits into that vision. It is a very inspiring, powerful and moving speech.

These links will be going up onto our website in the next few days.
