The Washington BlueGreen Alliance (BGA) is helping Washington turns its environmental challenges into economic opportunities. With active participation from many of the state’s largest unions and environmental organizations, BGA of Washington works on projects ranging from funding energy efficiency upgrades in public facilities to Bellingham Waterfront redevelopment, to trade policy. BGA has played a key role in building a broad-based campaign for strong climate policy and greater investment in an equitable transition to clean energy. The Alliance is co-chaired by Jeff Johnson, President of the Washington State Labor Council and KC Golden, Senior Policy Advisor for Climate Solutions. They received a 2014 Right Stuff Award from the national BGA Apollo Project for helping to build Washington BGA into a leading force for climate action and broadly shared prosperity in the clean energy transition. Stephanie Celt serves as staff coordinator and program leader for BGA of Washington.
