The Greenlining Institute envisions a nation where communities of color thrive and race is never a barrier to economic opportunity. 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 a strong Research Department that backs up our advocacy with solid data, and works to make that data widely available.
