Greening Initiative

WHEREAS, the world population is expanding at a mind-boggling rate; and 

WHEREAS, some of the world's natural resources are already depleted; and 

WHEREAS, population growth greatly strains our finite resources, there are fewer resources available; and 

WHEREAS, if we intend to leave our children and grandchildren with the same standard of living we enjoy we must preserve the foundation of standard living; and 

WHEREAS, President Obama and Vice President Biden have a comprehensive plan to invest in alternative and renewable energy, end our addiction to foreign oil, address the global climate crisis and create millions of new jobs. 

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People adopts the month of April as ―awareness month‖ for Greening; and 

BE IT FINALLY RESOLVED, that each unit would conduct workshops, or partnership with some other organization already versed in the subject.
