I (Heart) Phaedra Ellis-Lamkins

I have been going through some of the videos from the Momentum Conference that the Tides Foundation put on earlier this month and I have been completely blown away. They have pulled together some amazing thinkers and so far Phaedra Ellis-Lamkins has been my favorite. She is the new Director of Green For All, the organization that Van Jones started, and she has an amazing understanding of how to make change happen. Her full video is here but I also love the short clip above from Green for All that shows why green jobs are important in a visceral way. Each of our organizations has a powerful story to tell, we just need to be creative about how to get those messages out there.
