Apologies for the extremely short notice. Tomorrow, Monday, July 7 at
11:30AM, there will be a gathering / rally in front of the State House to
voice the need for Green Jobs in lower-income communities and communities of
color. Following the rally, there will be a hearing at 12PM on two pieces
of Green Jobs legislation (Senate Bill 2744, "An Act to Create Green Collar
