Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support  
In 2006, the Sierra Club and United Steelworkers formed the BlueGreen Alliance to work toward an economy in which job growth and environmental progress go hand in hand. Four major environmental organizations and ten prominent labor unions are now part of this alliance. This general support grant would allow the organization to continue helping labor and environmental organizations speak with a united voice on climate and energy policy issues, such as the Environmental Protection Agency’s policies to reduce global warming pollution from power plants and several states’ renewable energy and transportation policies.
