Lincoln Park Village named launch site for minority-based, entrepreneur network with Green focus in Newark

Newark, NJ - January 6, 2008 The New Jersey Professionals Network (NJPros), the latest addition to national collaborative The Professionals Network Org. (TPNO), named The Washington Street Buildings as launch site for their inaugural mixer on Thursday, January 29, 2009 from 6:30-8:30pm. The building, developed by Lincoln Park Coast Cultural District (LPCCD) is located at 450 Washington Street in the heart of Lincoln Park Village (LPV). The former abandoned lot is now LEED certified, prime real estate with sustainable amenities including solar panels and bamboo cabinets & flooring. With guidance from Van Jones and the Green for All message, the NJ Professionals are a growing resource for New Jersey's urban communities. The network of minority entrepreneurs and business professionals will learn and adapt sustainable business practices, inclusively creating growth opportunities for themselves and others.

"The Washington Street Buildings are a beautiful example of sustainability at its best. - from the Green materials used to create it, to the revitalization their presence brings to area. I wanted the NJPros launch to send a clear message of sustainability. The Lincoln Park site captures construction and the Green vision that Baye Wilson and the Lincoln Park team have for Newark," says Pamela B. Daniels, President, New Jersey Professionals Network.

NJPros will link blue and white collar professionals to sustainable business practices in an attempt to broaden Green understanding, create a sustainable system, and grow new entrepreneurs in the State of New Jersey. The network will host a series of mixers, seminars, webinars and community events throughout the upcoming year that increase professional development and resources within New Jersey's communities.

"This network is a great opportunity for professionals to learn and adapt Green methodologies to their business core; in-turn, creating resources and opportunities for the urban community at-large. This is the foundation of the Green Collar movement. Once applied, our community will be the change we want to see in the world," comments Renaldo M. DaSilva, Business Development Manager, Green for All.

The NJPros launch will take place on the third and fourth floor loft of the Washington Street Condominium. In addition to a business card exchange, there will be live music, h'ordeurves, wine & spirits and an awakening, congratulatory message from Van Jones, Founding President Green for All.
