By Channing Kennedy Feb 17, 2009

Ian Kim of the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights calls for advocacy groups to join forces, to ensure that the stimulus money gets put into green-collar jobs initiatives at all levels of government, to strengthen our most vulnerable communities, and to create sustainable industries for our new century. Ian lays it out: "We have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to get it right — to forge real working partnerships between community-based and racial justice advocates and organized labor, and intervene in the way that money gets used, this year, in a green way and in an equitable way."
