On Saturday, September 27th, 2008, tens of thousands of Americans will mobilize for “Green Jobs Now: A National Day of Action to Build the New Economy.” Green Jobs Now is a National Day of Action that will empower everyday people to stage hundreds of grassroots events throughout the country. Special emphasis is being focused toward low-income communities and communities of color.

Moontown Foundation is spearheading the largest Day of Action event in the state of Washington. Over 300 volunteers are being called into action and tasked to canvass an estimated 32,000 residents living in approximately 7,800 households and small businesses to spread the word.

The event, aptly called the White Center Energy Festival & Prosperity Project, will occur in the White Center Community, a highly diverse, economically challenged, neighborhood located south of Seattle in unincorporated King County. The event is designed to promote home energy efficiency, spur economic development, increase awareness the emerging green job market, as well as raise funds for the Eco Apprentice Scholarship Fund. A Fund meant to help low-income youth and young adults pursue educational training and certifications in so-called green job trades (i.e., energy efficiency auditing and solar panel installation) at local vocational and community colleges.

Residents may be eligible to win free home energy audits, as well as energy efficiency improvement products and services, as well as, low interests loans to finance improvements.
