Webinar “Lunch & Learn Party” Solar with Justice: Recommendations for Community Organizations
January 16 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Come join us in the Masiello Room – Webinar watch-party/brown-bag “lunch & learn”
This webinar will present the findings and recommendations from a new report that are especially relevant to community organizations and frontline energy equity leaders. Solar with Justice: Strategies for Powering Up Under-Resourced Communities and Growing an Inclusive Solar Economy was produced by a team from the Clean Energy States Alliance, the Jackson State University Department of Urban & Regional Planning, the Partnership for Southern Equity, PaulosAnalysis, the University of Michigan School for Environment & Sustainability, The Nathan Cummings Foundation, and The Solutions Project.
After members of the team give a brief overview of the report and describe model programs by community organizations, they will discuss the recommendations for actions that different community organizations can take to ensure solar empowers under-resourced communities and provides tangible financial and wealth-building benefits. More than 90 policymakers, community group leaders, solar experts, and energy equity advocates were interviewed as part of the research for the report.
