Celebrating Prince’s Legacy of Activism and Philanthropy
Curated by Adrian Ruiz
Excerpt: “Thanks to his incredibly successful career, Prince was able to support several causes that were very important to him, including clean energy and education. According to the late musician’s pal, Van Jones, Prince helped fund an organization Jones founded called Green for All. The charity aims to bring unions and environmentalists together to push for anti-poverty measures and a clean-energy economy, and has installed solar panels on the roofs of buildings in Oakland.
“There are people who have solar panels right now on their houses in Oakland, California that don’t know Prince paid for them,” Jones told SFGate not long after the singer’s death.”
