The Greenlining Institute works to bring the American Dream within reach of all, regardless of race or income. We work on a variety of issues because we recognize that economic opportunity doesn’t operate in a vacuum. We don’t see these issues as being in separate silos, but as interconnected threads in a web of opportunity.

Our programs are supported by strong research that backs up our advocacy with solid data, and we work to make that data widely available. You can find our latest research on our Publications and Resources page.
