"California Indian Manpower Consortium announces green jobs initiativeInitiative aims to bring green jobs to California's tribal landsThe California Indian Manpower Consortium (CIMC) - a non-profit corporation
dedicated to the purpose of working for the social welfare, educational and
economic advancement of California Native Americans - today announced an
initiative to bring green jobsto California's tribal communities.Under the new initiative, CIMC will be looking to develop relationships
with government entities, non-profit organizations, and public and private
companies who are looking to develop environmentally friendly programs
and/or technologies. Under the program, CIMC will be helping empower local
tribal communities to take leadership roles in restoring the land, air and
water of not only their tribal lands, but for the greater community as a
whole.""Native American tribes across California are willing and eager to
participate in our country's emerging green economy,"" said Lorenda Sanchez,
Executive Director of CIMC. ""It is only fitting that the communities who
first inhabited our country are being returned to the role of its steward
to help preserve it for future generations.""According to new government data, renewable energy and energy efficiency
programs will create millions of new jobs in the United States over the
next decade. Specifically, the data cites that we could have 37 million
jobs in our national economy in energy efficiency and renewable energy by
2030 - or approximately one out of every five jobs in the American economy.""Fundamental changes are coming in the American energy economy, and we need
to have a serious discussion of how tribes, as governments, fit into making
these changes happen,"" said Sanchez. ""We are ready to draw from our
traditional place as stewards of the earth and transfer these principles
into solutions to our world's environmental problems.""About California Indian Manpower Consortium, Inc.The California Indian Manpower Consortium, Inc. was formally created in
