Van Jones co-founded Green For All to solve poverty and pollution at the same time. We're building a green economy strong enough to lift people out of poverty. We're bringing clean energy, good jobs, and better health to communities who need it most.
Green For All has joined forces with national partners to call for EPA Administration Scott Pruitt's resignation.

Green For All released a new mini-series in partnership with Attn:, featuring the stories of women who are raising their families on the frontlines of pollution. These moms are mobilizing to fight for clean air and water all across America.
Recently, the Trump Administration has tried to roll back every major clean air and water protection we have. Hear their stories on why this matters and what their fight is all about. Then take action.
To Las Vegas:
Here’s 3 things you can do to help:
1) Submit a public comment to support the Clean Power Plan, which would curb pollution from power plants like the one near Jacob’s school in Las Vegas (and around the country): http://greenforall.org/cleanpowerplan
2) Call Congress to protect U.S. Environmental Protection Agency funding from getting cut so we can hold them accountable to do their job! Much of EPA's money gets re-granted to states for things like water infrastructure. Call 202-335-1787
3) Ask your state Governor to use VW settlement money to transition dirty diesel buses to clean zero emission buses. Sign the petition here.

The Trump Administration announced the repeal of the Clean Power Plan today. Van Jones reminds people that clean energy was once a bipartisan issue. Clean energy does not kill jobs. Degregulation of power plants will kill people though.
