Enter the Fuel Change Challenge

Fuel Change Challenge Artist

Green For All is partnering with Big Picture Anthems to produce an anthem and music video for our  #FuelChange campaign.

Submit your verse telling the stories of people affected by dirty cars, trucks, and buses to be considered for our music video to #FuelChange in our communities.

Selected artists will receive $400, have their verse featured on the anthem, have a chance to be in the music video, and gain national exposure while contributing to social justice.

Traffic-related pollution is now responsible for more deaths than traffic-related accidents. Low-income communities and communities of color are the most impacted by pollution. This anthem and music video will help activate a NATIONAL movement to bring clean transportation to communities across the country.
