Green For All
We dream of a world beyond pollution. We work to win cleaner air and water, affordable energy, and good jobs for all.
The climate crisis threatens our health, our neighborhoods, and our pocketbooks. But those burdens are not evenly shared, and current solutions leave some people out.
The Green For All program works to ensure that, as the green economy grows, all communities will benefit from good jobs, better health, and increased opportunity. Together, we dream of a healthy, sustainable future that is green for all, not green for some.

Now that Congress has approved billions of dollars for new green infrastructure investments, Green For All is working with federal, state, and local leaders to ensure that this funding gets to the communities that need it most but have had the hardest time accessing it. By helping more black and brown businesses enter the green economy, we can make the solutions to climate change an opportunity to invest in the communities most impacted by it.
What we’re working on:
Climate Justice
Green Jobs & Entrepreneurship
Transforming Communities
Voices of the People
Climate Justice

With more exposure to pollution and storms, and less investment in their infrastructure, communities of color are uniquely impacted by climate change and pollution. But they are also less likely to be a part of the solutions. This is a missed opportunity as we believe there is untapped genius in these communities to create a green economy that can halt climate change while creating more pathways into lucrative jobs in a growing sector. Through our work with leaders at the federal, state, and local level, we are changing this by supporting transformative policies that will mean cleaner, healthier communities. And by making climate equity a priority, we are making sure that clean energy and climate investments actually go to the communities most impacted by poverty and pollution. Our solutions focus on how people and communities of color will benefit from the green economy.

Green Jobs & Entrepreneurship

Black and Brown communities are most severely impacted by climate change and yet are rarely included in the creation of solutions. By bringing these communities into the conversation and making changes to the structural barriers keeping them out, we find equitable solutions to create a more inclusive green economy. That’s why we launched the Clean Energy Scholarship program to help more individuals – particularly those in communities of color – take a first step towards a green future, whether it’s getting an education or launching a business. And through our Dream.Org Business Council, we are ensuring Black and Brown entrepreneurs and innovators are at the forefront of the green transition by lifting up breakthrough ideas and technologies.

Building on the Green For All Clean Energy Scholarship Program, the Dream.Org Business Council Fellowship Program takes investing in diverse talent a step further by providing a full year of experience in a green job.

Transforming Communities

With the historic passage of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), there are now billions of dollars available for the green economy. This is an opportunity to ensure these essential government funds are going to the communities that need them most. Through local advocacy and in coordination with our state and federal policy efforts, we work with geographically and politically diverse disadvantaged communities to position them to compete for federal investments by providing planning and technical assistance support. 

No one knows what a community needs better than the community itself. That's why Dream.Org is launching our Transformative Communities initiative. We're engaging with 10 priority communities to help unlock federal climate dollars that meet their unique needs. This year we’ll be in: Fresno, CA; Washington D.C.; Denver, CO; Miami-Dade, FL; Detroit, MI; Las Vegas, NV; Riverside + San Bernardino, CA; Lumbee River, NC; Savannah, GA; Richmond, CA

Voices of the People

Through empathy-based communications and storytelling, we amplify the voices of people in the climate movement to impact change. We work with the best and brightest — from neighborhood activists to national organizations, Hip Hop artists to clergy, elected officials to business leaders and civil rights advocates – to build a sustainable future for all. We work with conservative and liberals alike to advance common-ground climate solutions that put us on a path forward to mitigate the impacts of climate change and uplift communities across the nation.
