Got Green is a grassroots environmental justice organization in South Seattle, Washington, led by people of color and low-income people. Got Green seeks to cultivate multi-generational community leaders and ensure that the benefits of the green movement and green economy (green jobs, healthy food, energy efficient and healthy homes, public transit, etc.) reach low-income communities and communities of color.
Got Green's approach to climate adaptation and preparedness involves supporting the frontline working-class families and families of color to ensure fair housing, dignified work, public transit, and healthy food for all. Got Green is working to draw the links between gentrification, displacement, climate change, and community power. In 2016, Got Green and Puget Sound Sage co-authored the community-based report Our People, Our Planet, Our Power outlining a path toward climate resilience in South Seattle.
