10 Years of BlueGreen Alliance Foundation

With guest appearances from U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar, Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton, and Lt. Gov. Tina Smith, the 10th Anniversary Celebration of the BlueGreen Alliance and BlueGreen Alliance Foundation held on September 23 in Minneapolis was a great event

It celebrated the past decade of work and looked forward to new challenges and opportunities that the partnership is tackling today.

Hundreds of supporters from around the country showed up to honor former Executive Director David Foster, United Steelworkers International President Leo W. Gerard, Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune, former Sierra Club Executive Director Carl Pope, and Apollo Alliance Chairman Phil Angelides. They received BlueGreen Alliance Visionary Awards for their work in forming and maintaining this strong partnership of labor unions and environmental organizations.

We want to give a special thank you to all of the sponsors, allies, and supporters who attended the event.
