Green Streetz is a campaign designed to educate and mobilize low-income communities and communities of color to participate in the new and developing clean-energy economy.
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act includes substantial support to help build the foundation for a green economy. Pending federal climate legislation will deepen that commitment and help position the country at the global forefront of the burgeoning clean energy sector. As our nation undergoes this critical transition, we must make sure that the economic, social and environmental benefits are shared by all communities.
Green Streetz seeks to ensure that low-income communities and communities of color have the resources and platforms needed to access the benefits and opportunities of the growing clean-energy economy.
The four pillars of the Green Streetz Campaign are:
- Green Jobs
- Urban Gardening
- Environmental Entrepreneurship
- Energy Efficiency
- Natural Resources Concervation
- Environmental Advocacy
