Announcement: Greenlining's Office Closure

With increasing concern over the outbreak of COVID-19, the Greenlining Team is taking precautions to keep our staff and workplace safe. We have chosen to close our Oakland headquarters and will be working remotely.  Additionally, The Greenlining 360 Center has suspended community events until further notice. At this stage, we are continuing to monitor the outbreak's potential impact on our work and will make any adjustments needed in order to keep our community safe.
What We Do

We're building a future where communities of color thrive

Founded in 1993, The Greenlining Institute is a policy, research, organizing, and leadership institute working for racial and economic justice. We work on a variety of major policy issues, from the economy to environmental policy, health care and many others, because economic opportunity has many parts, and they all connect.
