Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon will be hosting a green jobs rally this Friday, May 8.  The rally will take place during rush hour across from Cedar Street at the southeast corner of campus.  The rally begins at 5:00 pm and is scheduled to run until 6:30 pm.

“Many Pacific seniors will be graduating this year, only to start looking for a job during the toughest economic times this country has seen in decades.  One of the best hopes for creating new jobs in the US is investment in clean energy and energy efficiency projects which will create thousands of good-paying jobs while at the same time averting a looming environmental crisis. “  Source: Pacific University
