Our Story

Our Mission

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.

Our Philosophy

Green For All acknowledges the need to disrupt the current economy, because we understand that our current economy was based upon human trafficking, the exploitation of labor, and violent racism.

We have a grounded and truthful message, build diverse relationships, and occupy unique spaces. We are safe enough to be invited into spaces where power-building groups are not, and radical enough to push a deeply justice-based agenda in those spaces. We are radical enough to partner with grassroots organizations when other national groups are turned away, and enough of an ally to offer resources and support in those spaces.

It is this type of shape-shifting that allows us to do some of our best work—accelerating the best ideas and connecting the people who need to be in conversation.

Green For All translates complex information from national initiatives and experts into eye-catching media that will inform vulnerable communities about the realities of climate change. Since our inception, Green For All has served as an air traffic controller of information, using our strong relationships across very different sectors to ensure that the right individuals understand the right information at the right time.


We bring a unique set of relationships to our work: decision-makers (from mayors to federal agencies like the EPA), national organizations (from environmental groups like 350.org and the Sierra Club to civil rights groups like the NAACP), local community and business leaders (from our Green For All fellows to companies like Mosaic and Volt Energy), to pop culture icons (like Prince, Drake, and Wiz Khalifa). Green For All supports and produces events that build relationships between people and organizations needing to drive the creation of climate change solutions for vulnerable communities. In events both inspirational and technical, we convene practitioners, activists, and decision-makers to accelerate the pace of thought leadership in this field.

Catalyze Action

We incubate the best ideas from our gatherings and relationship-management work in a series of projects that Green For All will house on an annual basis. These projects are selected based upon their ability to address multiple needs (poverty, climate resilience, health, social capital development, etc.), replicability, and ability to forward the narrative about vulnerable communities driving their own solutions to climate change.

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.

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.
