Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support  
Dream Corps is a social justice accelerator focused on supporting cutting-edge initiatives. Founded by Van Jones — a social entrepreneur, CNN political contributor, and host of The Van Jones Show on CNN — the organization supports economic, environmental, and criminal justice innovators in a shared platform for change. Dream Corps plans to propel its work forward and dramatically increase its impact through its four initiatives: Green For All, #cut50, #YesWeCode, and #LoveArmy. It will also allow the organization to further activate and engage its sizable and growing community of supporters toward further bridging areas of social, economic, and racial justice.

Green For All, an initiative of Dream Corps, works to ensure that climate and clean-energy policies are well-designed and deliver economic, job creation, and public health benefits equitably. This grant will provide broad program support for Green For All’s work on communications, culture shifting, advocacy, and collaboration geared toward ensuring that the transition away from fossil fuels and toward clean energy benefits low-income communities and communities of color.
