lushing is home to one of the most diverse and dynamic neighborhoods in New York City. From the1657 Remonstrance against Governor Stuyvesant’s persecuon of religious minories to our role as astaon on the Underground Railroad, Flushing has welcomed people of dierent cultures and faithsfrom around the world. Today, Flushing is a modern metropolis with an internaonal business com-munity that speaks 21 languages and a commercial district that has grown to be the fourth largest in the City.Unfortunately, the last recession hurtour business community and manyresidents remain jobless — despite awealth of skills and experiences. NewYork City’s unemployment rate sllhovers around 9% — higher than thenaonal average — and that’s onlycounng those sll looking for a job.
 
In December 2011, we launched the ONE FLUSHING Community Economic Development Center to compre-hensively address the challenges faced by small business owners and local residents. Our strategy is to builda mulcultural coalion of business owners, civic associaons, cultural instuons, and houses of worshipwho work together to build a strong, diverse, and sustainable community. Last year, ONE FLUSHING workedwith local employers to organize a job fairthat connected over 350 jobseekers witheconomic opportunies.
 
This year, we want to go further. We wantto promote the concept of “Green Jobs” —economic opportunies that sustain ourfamilies, our community, and our environ-ment. What’s the point of providing jobs in industries that poison our bodies and destroy the planet? If wereally care about the future of our children and the Earth, we need to support the development of careersand industries that “protect ecosystems and biodiversity; reduce energy, materials, and water consumponthrough high eciency strategies; de
-
carbonize the economy; and minimize or altogether avoid generaonof all forms of waste and polluon.” If you believe Green Jobs are the future, you’re at the right place.
