Justin A. Butler
Justin is a part of the movement to leverage the growing green economy to secure green-collar jobs for disadvantaged communities and communities of color—a movement that promises to liberate us from oppressive poverty while reversing global warming. He is spending the summer 2008 working with the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights’ Green-Collar Jobs Campaign in Oakland, CA. During the school year he interns at Sustainable South Bronx. Justin will graduate in 2009 from Sarah Lawrence College with a B.A. in Writing and Human Geography. Justin is often laughing and making music with his friends and his mom.

How can you describe a weekend of student leaders from across the U.S. with an intense passion to change the world? The Orientation was a phenomenal experience to meet and build connections that I'm sure will last a lifetime.
