The Greenlining Institute

Founded in 1993, The Greenlining Institute is a policy, research, organizing, and leadership institute working for racial and economic justice. They work on a variety of major policy issues, from the economy to environmental policy, health care and many others, because economic opportunity has many parts, and they all connect. The Greenlining Institute doesn't see these issues as being in separate silos, but as interconnected threads in a web of opportunity.

Driving everything they do is a vision of equity in which opportunity is truly within reach of all. For our nation to succeed, communities of color must succeed, and they are determined to make that happen. https://greenlining.org/about/our-mission-history/



Miss Ollie's

Chef Sarah Kirnon made a splash with fresh takes on Caribbean flavors. Miss Ollie's, draws from the same palette of flavors that informed her earlier work. For the Barbados-born chef it's personal: Her first restaurant as both chef and owner is named for her grandmother. Kirnon's influences are the women-run restaurants that fused the national cuisines of the West Indies, mirroring the fluidity and movement of island populations.
