In 2011, Sam led a successful national campaign to block the biggest telecom merger in U.S. history. He’s also written and passed legislation impacting smallbusinesses, the green economy, and education. Sam regularly authored one of Greenlining’s most heralded reports, the annual Supplier Diversity Report Card, which grades the supplier diversity efforts of California’s largest utilities.While it's bittersweet to see him leave, we know that he's moving on to bigger things, and that his service and commitment to our communities will be stronger than ever.

The Greenlining Institute


We envision a nation where communities of color thrive and race is never a barrier to economic opportunity.

Our Work

Founded in 1993, The Greenlining Institute envisions a nation where communities of color thrive and race is never a barrier to economic opportunity. Because people of color will be the majority of our population by 2044, America will prosper only if communities of color prosper. Greenlining advances economic opportunity and empowerment for people of color through advocacy, community and coalition building, research, and leadership development. We work on a variety of major policy issues, from the economy to environmental policy, civic engagement and many others, because economic opportunity doesn’t operate in a vacuum. Rather than seeing these issues as being in separate silos, Greenlining views them as interconnected threads in a web of opportunity.
