Last Saturday was a historic day, as thousands of Americans supported Green Jobs Now by attending nearly 700 events in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. Meanwhile, tens of thousands have also signed the "I'm Ready" petition, and the Green Jobs Now team is receiving more signatures in the mail every day. We know that many 1Sky folks participated in these events and even took the lead in organizing them, so from all of us here at 1Sky, thank you!

Here's a video montage of an event held in Anacostia, Washington, DC, produced by our new film fellow Mónica Pinzón :

As many of you already know, the Green Jobs Now National Day of Action was a huge success! There were over 660 events in all 50 states, including an event at my school, Whitman College, in Walla Walla, Washington. Not only did this rally start the green jobs dialogue throughout the campus and the city, but it personally inspired me.
