Green for All

Fires, floods and foreclosures are the latest signs that we are caught in twin crises: economic downturn and environmental devastation. But a shift to green economic development - creating millions of jobs in the emerging "clean and green" economy - can lead the entire country to a safer, healthier future.

Such a shift would create countless new opportunities. Low-income communities and communities of color have borne the brunt of the failures of the poisonous, old, "grey" economy. We want to remedy that - and make sure they get equal access to the opportunity inherent in the new green one.

If we do this right, we could save the country from its own shortcomings and help it fulfill its long-awaited promise.

This is why we are here. We want you to join GREEN FOR ALL.

We believe a shift to clean energy can improve the health and well-being of low-income people, who suffer disproportionately from cancer, asthma and other respiratory ailments in our dirty-energy economy.

Also, we believe it can create entrepreneurial, wealth-building opportunities for those who need new avenues of economic advance.

In other words: we believe that the national effort to curb global warming and oil dependence can simultaneously create good jobs, safer streets and healthier communities.

For us, our highest calling is to ensure that the clean-energy economy in the 21st century in fact does all of these things. Indeed, we would say that America¹s chief moral obligation is to build a green economy that is strong enough to lift many people out of poverty.Green For All is a national organization dedicated to building an inclusive green economy strong enough to lift people out of poverty.

Working with federal, state and local government, Green for All advocates for job creation, job training, and entrepreneurial opportunities in the emerging green economy – especially for people from disadvantaged communities in order to fight both poverty and pollution at the same time.

GREEN FOR ALL works daily to extend the green revolution to the neglected streets of cities like Oakland, Detroit, Baltimore and New Orleans.
