Self-titled defenders of the environment held a rally on the Downtown Mall in Charlottesville Thursday afternoon as "The Job's Not Done" Bus Tour made a stop in town to bring awareness to clear energy jobs.

The Charlottesville stop is one of 30 stops in 17 states that the bus has made between August 16 and September 3. The bus started its cross-country tour in Carson, California and will end it Friday in Richmond.

The nationwide tour urges action on comprehensive clean energy climate change legislation that organizers say could help create up to 50,000 jobs in the Commonwealth.

The bus tour features clean energy workers, union members and environmentalists urging Senate action on job-creating, clean energy legislation. The tour is organized by the BlueGreen Alliance, a national, strategic partnership of labor unions and environmental organizations working to expand the number and quality of green jobs in the United States.
