Green For All is a national organization working to build an inclusive green economy strong enough to lift people out of poverty.
Green For All is dedicated to improving the lives of all Americans through a clean energy economy. We work in collaboration with the business, government, labor, and grassroots communities to increase quality jobs and opportunities in the green industry – all while holding the most vulnerable people at the center of our agenda.
Why We Need a Clean Energy Economy
A clean energy economy will move America past some of its most pressing challenges.
By making us energy independent, it will improve our national and economic security. By radically reducing the pollution that causes global warming, it will improve the health of our families and neighborhoods. And by creating millions of quality jobs and careers, it will breathe new life into our economy, strengthen our middle class, and better protect us from future economic turmoil.
More than that, building a clean energy economy is a chance to reinvigorate and reinvest in the best part of the American dream: the idea that everyone gets a chance to succeed. By ensuring that every community has equal access to the new opportunities of the green economy, we can lift millions of people out of poverty.
Green For All’s Work
Training young community leaders to be world-class spokespeople for the clean energy economy. Developing business tools for small green enterprises. Pulling together workforce development agencies. Advocating on Capitol Hill for green job training for vulnerable communities.
Green For All works on a number of levels to build a clean energy economy that closes gaps in income, opportunity, security and health across the country. Our work takes many forms, all tied to three central tasks: to innovate policy, develop capacity, and build a movement.
Green For All develops and advocates for innovative policies that 1) promote a clean-energy economy to solve the urgent problems of both our economy and our environment, and 2) enable governments at the federal, state and local levels to expand access and opportunity in the clean-energy economy.
Green For All helps develop and strengthen the capacity of — and partnerships among — business, government, labor, non-profits and grassroots communities. These partnerships help leverage public and private investment to sustain a clean-energy economy and create millions of quality green jobs.
BUILD A MOVEMENT
Green For All engages and equips diverse and nontraditional networks of leaders, organizations, coalitions and communities to build awareness and increase demand for policies and infrastructure that create clean energy jobs and investment in green industries. We strengthen the movement’s ability to organize and create change at the local, state and national levels.
