I understand the connecting white and black wires. What do I do with a green grounding wire and copper grounding wire that is attached to the light fixture?

Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
So you are removing a light and putting an outlet in?
Simply connect the ground to the ground screw on the plug. It is no different than how you connect the black or white wires.
If you are confused because there are two grounding wires but only one screw, then either use a grounding wire nut or twist the grounds together in such a way that you have one sticking out further then the other. Then you just put the tag end on the grounding screw.
