As Van Jones begins his career as the Special Advisor for Green Jobs to the White House, Phaedra Ellis-Lamkins begins hers as the new chief executive officer at Green For All.  The two discuss the transition in the video above.  The organization has also scheduled a conference call next week.

The call, Grassroots Action Toward a Green Recovery for All, will begin at 3 p.m. EST on Wednesday, March 25.  The call will focus on the use of the Recovery Act funds.  There is no charge to participate in the conference call, but an online RSVP is required.
