Reviews

"In the wealthiest society in history no one should live in substandard housing that wastes lives, energy, and resources. Gray to Green Communities is a thoughtful, articulate, and impassioned call to do better. Dana Bourland makes a powerful case for addressing the housing crisis systematically with the tools of integrated design to help solve problems of climate change, unemployment, and social decay while building cohesive, just, and prosperous communities. A must read!"--David W. Orr, author of "The Nature of Design", "Earth in Mind", and co-editor of "Democracy Unchained"

"Dana has listened to the voice, wisdom, and experience of early champions of the green communities movement. In doing so, she manifests the radical imagination necessary to provide life- and world-changing solutions to our nation's housing and climate challenges. She also centers racial equity by advancing solutions that prioritize millions of people hurt first and worst by poor housing conditions and climate-related disasters. Gray to Green Communities is a generational call to action and a salve for souls yearning for harmony between people and planet."--Michael McAfee, President and CEO, PolicyLink

"Dana Bourland shows us how a smart approach to climate, housing, and social policy can result in a stronger economy and healthier citizens. Communities that were locked out of the last century's pollution-based economy need to be locked into the new clean and green economy. Gray to Green Communities is a must-read for anyone who cares about an inclusive, green path forward."--Van Jones, political commentator, CNN

"If you're worried about climate change and wondering where to start on the road to a healthy, equitable, and sustainable future, read Gray to Green Communities. Dana Bourland reminds us that a better future must begin at home, or more precisely in the transition to healthier, affordable housing for those who need it most. After all, there's no place like home."--Gina McCarthy, Pres/CEO of NRDC, Former Administrator of US EPA under President Obama
