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.
