Green For All is part of a broad coalition of organizations working to develop a clean, equitable, modern transportation system in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions of the United States.

Our goal is to make polluters pay for their pollution and invest in clean transportation solutions in the low-income communities and communities of color most impacted by climate change. We're working with community partners across the region, elevating and uplifting the concerns and voices of the most impacted, and ensuring they have the resources and tools they need so no one is left behind in the transition to a green economy.

As Trump slashes climate protections, Green For All founder Van Jones, Vien Truong, Keith Ellison, and dozens of leaders across the country join forces to issue an open letter to Governor Cuomo urging him to lead on climate. Even the House of Cards creator wanted in. Read the story here

The NY Renews Coalition continues to lead the fight on the ground to commit the state to cut climate pollution 100% by 2050, while prioritizing investment for families on the frontlines, and ensuring a just transition for affected workers. Green For All is proud to support their leadership.

Oregon lawmakers are considering a cap and invest bill that is projected to raise nearly $700 million for Oregon communities. The effort is being led by the Renew Oregon and the Coalition of Communities of Color in partnership with partners across the state. Recently Green For All sat down with Street Roots Portland to talk about the bill that would create #CleanEnergyJobs. Read the story here. Check out the latest campaign news from Renew Oregon.

The Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) is an effort to curb pollution from the power sector. It charges electricity producers for the carbon pollution they create and invests it in energy savings, renewable energy and energy efficiency. But RGGI must be improved to ensure frontline communities see emission reductions and green investments. 

Northeast states participating in RGGI include Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont. Right now, these states are deciding how strong a pollution cap to set for the region. 

We're calling on Northeast Governors to double the strength of RGGI and conduct an environmental justice analysis.
