    Hi!


    We just created an account and wanted to post a job on the Green Latinos job board, but the form doesn’t seem to be working. It won’t submit our description. We’d love to post up our opening for an Advocacy & Field Director at Exposure Labs.


    Thanks!

    The Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration Program (CFLRP) Issues Call for Advisory Panel Nominations!

    Please consider applying and help us get the word out!


    The USDA Forest Service is now recruiting candidates for the CFLRP Federal Advisory Panel to evaluate CFLRP proposals and provide recommendations to the Secretary of the Department of Agriculture on final CFLRP project selections.


    Congress created CFLRP in 2009 to support large-scale forest restoration and benefit local communities through collaborative approaches. CFLRP has proven to be an effective tool for improving forest conditions, growing rural economies, and leveraging partner investments to improve the quality and scale of our work. Congress reauthorized CFLRP in the 2018 Farm Bill, doubling the authorized funding level to $80 million per year and creating the opportunity for new CFLRP projects. The Farm Bill also provides an opportunity for current CFLRP projects funded for ten years to apply for an extension waiver to complete implementation.


    What does the CFLRP Advisory Panel do?

    - The purpose of the panel is to review, evaluate, and provide recommendations on each nominated CFLRP project to the Secretary of Agriculture for final selections. It is solely advisory in nature.

    - To this end, the advisory panel is required to meet annually and may meet as often as is necessary to review and evaluate CFLRP proposals and make recommendations.


    Who should apply to serve on the CFLRP Advisory Panel?

    - Panel members will be appointed based on their expertise and knowledge in the following areas:

    o Ecological restoration,

    o Fire ecology,

    o Fire management,

    o Rural economic development,

    o Strategies for ecological adaptation to climate change,

    o Fish and wildlife ecology, and/or

    o Woody biomass and small-diameter tree utilization

    - The Committee will consist of officials from academia; tribal, state, county, or similar agencies; non-government organizations; and related industries. Committee membership will be fairly balanced in terms of the points of view represented.

    - Equal opportunity practices, in line with USDA policies, will be followed.

    - Individuals directly involved in developing a CFLRP proposal and/or actively involved in a specific CFLRP collaborative(s) planning to apply for a new project or extension are advised not to apply due to potential conflicts of interest.


    What else do I need to know?

    - The appointment of members will be made by the Secretary of Agriculture.

    - Members serve without compensation, but with reimbursement of travel expenses.

    - Panelists will be subject to appropriate conflict of interest statutes and standards of ethical conduct as well as a Financial Disclosure Report.

    - This Panel will expire in 2 years from the date of filing unless renewed.

    - The time commitment includes at least one annual meeting and proposal review and meeting preparation.


    How can I apply?

    - Please submit your application following the instructions in the Federal Register Notice

    - The call for nominations is open from October 15 through November 14 (30 days)

    - Applicants will need to provide a resume and complete a form providing additional background. Letters of recommendation are welcome.

    Dear people dedicated to eliminating Climate Change,


    IMPORTANT!! Millions of people around the world have organized rallies to fight Climate Change. Yet, they are IGNORANT of two of the greatest technological discoveries of our era that will eliminate the threat of Climate Change and poverty. These millions of people NEED to be informed by reading Section 3.0 of http://www.nicholasginex.com/2018/04/15/everything-has-a-beginning-even-the-universe/


    You need to help educate and inform people world-wide that there is a solution that has NOT been disclosed but kept secret by the military and aerospace corporations in the United States.


    Also read the CONCLUSIONS of the paper.


    Let me know how I may help your cause further.


    Sincerely, Nicholas

    Hello,



    My name is Preyah James, and I’m the Education and Community Engagement Assistant at Scenic Hudson, a land trust based in Poughkeepsie, NY. As a member of the education team at Scenic Hudson, we work to give youth opportunities to connect to their local environment and become empowered to advocate for their communities and the environment.



    I am currently working on a series of about 15 posters and a classroom curriculum we are calling “People Who Make a Difference”. Our goal for this project is to help fill a void by recognizing members of historically underrepresented groups/identities for their contributions to various environmental movements. Once completed, the posters will be distributed to local schools and available online, giving students and others the opportunity to learn about inspiring changemakers who have had a positive impact on the environment.


    I’m reaching out to inform Mark Magaña that we’ve chosen them and their story to be a subject for one of the posters in our upcoming series. Each poster will include a portrait of the person and a brief description highlighting notable achievements and contribution to improving the environment.



    The posters will be designed and created by local college students from a graphic design class at Dutchess Community College. Students will have the ability to express their own creativity and make decisions about the overall design of the posters. It will also provide students with professional graphic design experience by working with us as a client.



    Please let me know if you have any questions, concerns, or feedback you have concerning the project. If Mr. Magaña has a high-quality portrait of themselves that they’d prefer to be used for the poster, we’d be more than happy to accommodate. We will send along updates once the project is complete, but be in touch if anything comes up in the meantime.


    Thank you so much for all you do, we look forward to celebrating you and other transformative people.

    What I’m doing:


    1. Working with the Lee County, FL “Democratic Environmental Caucus of Florida”


    2. Growing the “Lee County Hispanics” group to get Hispanics to the ballot box in 2020.


    3. Promoting the Fair Automatic Simple Tax (“FAST”) as “the tool” to make Democratic Candidates “palatable” to Independents and Republicans not happy with Trump.


    The FAST Tax model is the way to provide the revenue necessary to address the very cause you so avidly support.
