A volunteer in the Minneapolis community, Green currently serves as a director and the chair of the Minnesota Orchestral Association, as well as a director of the Minnesota Chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and as past chair of the organization’s foundation. He is also a trustee of Lake Harriet United Methodist Church Foundation, and has served in director roles for OneVillage Partners and Our Saviour’s Housing.
He earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan, master’s degree from the University of Minnesota Carlson School of Management and his Juris Doctor from University of Michigan Law School, where he was an editor of Michigan Journal of International Legal Studies.
