Dean is the Director of the Labor and Economic Justice Program at the Sierra Club, the nation’s largest and most influential grass roots environmental organization. As the Club’s Labor Director, he builds campaigns for economic justice in the transition to a clean energy economy that works for everybody, not just the 1%. One of his chief responsibilities at the Sierra Club is Clean Power Plan for Healthy Communities, which is fighting to make sure that economic and environmental justice voices and concerns are heard and incorporated into the Clean Power implementation plans in states around the country. Dean is also Chair of the BlueGreen Alliance (BGA) Steering Committee. The BGA unites 15 of the country’s most influential labor unions and environmental organizations, representing some 16 million people, to address environmental and climate challenges in ways that create quality jobs and build a fairer economy. Prior to working at the Sierra Club, Dean spent over 25 years in the labor movement, as an attorney, organizer, educator and artist for unions and community organizations fighting for workplace, environmental and racial justice.
