At the Lance Armstrong Foundation, we unite people to fight cancer believing that unity is strength, knowledge is power and attitude is everything. Founded in 1997 by cancer survivor and champion cyclist Lance Armstrong, we inspire and empower people affected by cancer. We provide the practical information and tools people with cancer need to live life on their own terms and we take aim at the gaps between what is known and what is done to prevent suffering and death due to cancer. We unite people to fight cancer and pursue an agenda focused on Prevention, access to screening and care, improvement of the quality of life for cancer survivors and investment in research.

Green For All is a new national organization dedicated to building an inclusive green economy strong enough to lift people out of poverty. Founded by Van Jones, formerly of Oakland’s Ella Baker Center, Green For All has a simple but ambitious mission: to build an inclusive green economy strong enough to lift millions of people in the United States out of poverty and into prosperity. We are uniquely focused on the nexus of civil rights, environmental health and sustainability, urban renewal, and green economics. We envision local, state and national commitments to job creation, training, and entrepreneurial opportunities in an emerging green economy—especially for people from disadvantaged communities. Simply put: by creating green pathways out of poverty, Green For All battles poverty and pollution at the same time.
