We are unique in a number of ways because we are the first cross-organizational effort focused on building power and diversity in any advocacy sector.

What we do

Launched in 2013, the Green Leadership Trust works to build an environmental and conservation movement that wins. Our movements authentically reflect and engage the country and its communities with a specific focus on those most impacted by environmental degradation and who have least benefited from the fundamental right to a clean and healthy environment: communities of color, indigenous communities, and low-income communities. Justice and equity ground our decisions and we forge environmental solutions not with trade-offs but by addressing multiple issues simultaneously, strengthening democracy, engagement, and resilience in all communities.

Diversify your Board of Directors

We are happy to assist you with sourcing diverse board members from our network. You will need to fill out an application and speak with the GLT’s leadership team. For more information, you can contact us at info@greenleadershiptrust.org.

Changemakers wanted.

We are a national environmental non-profit that envisions a stronger, more connected, and more equitable environmental movement, and that starts within.
