The Greenlining Institute works towards a future where communities of color can build wealth, live in healthy places filled with economic opportunity, and are ready to meet the challenges posed by climate change.
Greenlining is building an abundant future that brings investments and opportunities into our communities – what we call Greenlining. Since 1993, we have successfully advocated and negotiated initiatives directing more than $800 billion in corporate and public investments into communities of color in California and across the nation.
Our team brings lived experience and racial equity expertise to drive our mission and fulfill our vision.
