Overview
This grant will allow the BlueGreen Alliance Foundation to continue helping labor and environmental organizations speak with a united voice on climate and energy policy issues. In 2018, the organization will focus on campaigns to ensure that America leads the world in manufacturing and deploying the next generation of clean energy and vehicle technologies while improving jobs and community well-being in order to build a broader, stronger movement for climate solutions. The Alliance Foundation will promote state-based "Buy Clean" policies that establish carbon emissions standards for procurement of industrial infrastructure materials like glass, steel, and insulation, and will support and defend state and federal policies that enhance continued job growth in the U.S. related to existing and emerging electric vehicle technology, manufacturing, and supply chain.

Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support  
This grant will allow the BlueGreen Alliance Foundation to continue helping labor and environmental organizations forge a common agenda and speak with a united voice on climate and energy issues. In 2019, the organization will focus on campaigns to ensure that America leads the world in manufacturing and deploying the next generation of clean energy and vehicle technologies, while improving jobs and community well-being in order to build a broader, stronger movement for climate solutions. By bringing together union members and environmentalists, BlueGreen injects a perspective of shared economic prosperity into the debates around solving environmental challenges, lifts up new and credible voices, and builds "a path to yes" for state and federal policymakers.
for the Coalition of the Willing project  
With the support of the Hewlett Foundation over the next two years, the BlueGreen Alliance Foundation will spearhead a multi-pronged effort to convene, collaborate with, and define consensus principles and a platform for climate action among groups representing labor, environmental protection, and people of color — with the aim of building the public will necessary to achieve ambitious climate solutions in the future.
