Dear Friends!In our first year, Ubuntu Green has grown from a dream to an organization thatenjoys the enthusiastic support of its Board, staff, volunteers and most importantlythe community. In 2009, we became a non-profit 501c3 organization, establishedthe annual Green Oak Park! event, completed our first strategic planning processand began to advocate for green justice principals and innovations in theSacramento region and beyond.In addition, we have created partnerships with other organizations, governmentalagencies, businesses and individuals that will lead to continued successes in 2010.This has included active participation in The California Endowment supportedSacramento Building Healthy Communities and Sacramento Regional FoodCollaborative processes and monitoring and working with the City and County of Sacramento and the Sacramento Area Council of Government¶s (SACOG).In 2010, we will launch our online Green Resource Center, the Green YouthLeadership Team (GYLT), Green Oak Park! 2010, and partnerships aimed atensuring transportation equity, leadership development for local citizens andimproved food access in low income communities and communities of color.As we continue to grow, we need the support of all of our friends. In these last fewdays of the season of giving, please take a few moments to give to Ubuntu Green!When you give now you¶ll get your tax deduction for 2009, while making sure wehave the capacity to continue to build sustainable and equitable communities.May peace and health follow you through the New Year!
