The Green the Block campaign will officially kick off with Wyclef & Friends at the Green the Block Launch Party after the Congressional Black Caucus Annual Legislative Conference Gala, tomorrow (September 26th).

On August 4th, the Hip Hop Caucus and Green For All publically announced Green the Block from the White House.

Green the Block is a partnership between Green for All and the Hip Hop Caucus to educate and mobilize low-income, traditionally under-served communities to ensure they have the resources and platforms needed to access the benefits and opportunities of the growing clean energy economy.

On September 11, you all organized 94 Green the Block events in 24 states as a part of the first National Service and Remembrance Day.

This Saturday, we will be rolling out the red carpet and introducing Green the Block to the nation, with our gracious host Wyclef, Members of Congress, and friends from around the country.

If you are in or near Washington DC, join us. The Launch Party begins at 8pm and is at Lux Lounge (649 New York Ave). All the info is here.

If you can't join us check out the Green The Block website, get involved, and take action today.

For Future Generations,
Rev Yearwood
Hip Hop Caucus
