Friend and "Slammingest" Poet Aya de Leon and the Applied Research Center are there right now, among many others. If you missed this year's conference, do check out the conference website for links on a broad coalition of Green activists across the nation.

The ARC, based in Oakland, CA, also publishes ColorLines: the national magazine on race and politics. My short story, "Bender's Bow," is in the new March/April 2008 issue.

The cover story, "Who Gain's from the Green Economy" by Preeti Mangala Shekar and Tram Nguyen (We Are All Suspects Now) spotlights Van Jones of the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights who is committed to making sure that the "Green Wave" doesn't sweep past communities of color.
