Program areas at The Greenlining Institute
Energy and Tech Equity - Works to make sure that people at all income levels have access to affordable electric, gas, and information and communications technology services.
Leadership Academy - Thriving communities of color urgently need a generation of young people who are informed and engaged in addressing the most critical issues facing their communities. The GreenliningAcademy works to empower and develop the next generation of multi-ethnic leaders to advance racial and economic equity and create positive social change. We seek to develop a network of visionaryleaders ready to work across racial and ethnic lines to address America's most pressing problems and develop sustainable solutions rooted in equity and justice.
Environmental Equity: All communities must have clean air and water, and one's life expectancy should never be determined by zip code, race or income. Though climate change and pollution hurt us all, communities of color suffer first and worst, while climate change policies have not adequately addressed these disparities. Greenlining's Environmental Equity team has led the drafting and passage of crucial laws to improve health and environmental quality for low-income communities andcommunities of color and bring "green" dollars to these communities, and works every day to make sure these policies get implemented effectively.
