*** 3/9 DC Net Impact Happy Hour at Cafe Green ***

We’re are thrilled to announce that Jimmy Cooney, the general manager of Cafe Green, will join us to share with us the mission, vision, and behind scenes secrets of running a green business.

Details and RSVP at:

*** 3/9 New America Foundation: “The Path to Preserving Economic Growth and Reducing the Deficit” (with Senator Charles Schumer) ***

*** 3/9 New Organizing Institute March Madness Happy Hour ***

*** 3/9 NDN PANEL: Bold and Nimble: A 21st-Century Case for Ambitious Government (moderated by E. J. Dionne) ***

*** 3/10 Campaign For America’s Future Summit on Jobs & America’s Future ***

Keynoting the summit will be Richard Trumka, President of the AFL-CIO. Along with the brave protestors rallying to protect workers in Wisconsin and around the country, Trumka is reminding Americans why the labor movement is essential to a prosperous middle class, and why we need full employment to make sure our enemies can’t pit people with jobs against people who want jobs.

Van Jones, leading crusader for green jobs, will share his inspirational call for a new independent movement to defend the “American Dream.” He knows that, if we all work together, we can put everyone to work by freeing our economy from the fossil fuel industries.

And come discuss a movement for jobs all day with Robert L. Borosage, Robert Pollin, Angela Glover Blackwell, Celinda Lake, Wade Henderson, Gloria Totten, Leo Hindery, Jr., Robert Kuttner, Kate Gordon, Roger Hickey, Congressman George Miller, Congressman Keith Ellison, Senator Sherrod Brown (invited), Mayor Antonio R. Villaraigosa, Ilyse Hogue, Deepak Bhargava, Karen Nussbaum, Robert Biko Baker, Robert Kraig and Rev. Paul H. Sherry.

Atlas Corps, started in 2006, is an international network of nonprofit leaders and organizations that promotes innovation, cooperation, and solutions to address the world’s 21st century challenges. Our mission is to address critical social issues by developing leaders, strengthening organizations, and promoting innovation through an overseas fellowship of skilled nonprofit professionals. Profiled as a “best practice” in international exchange by the Brookings Institution and featured in the Washington Post as a model social entrepreneurship program, Atlas Corps engages leaders committed to the nonprofit sector in 12 to 18 month, professional fellowships at organizations to learn best practices, build organizational capacity, and return home to create a network of global changemakers. In March 2011, our network of Fellows will include 74 nonprofit leaders from 23 countries.
