Please join an amazing panel of local and national leaders for a conversation on environmental, racial and climate justice issues! Panelists – including Indigenous elders from the Pacific Northwest and environmental justice advocates from rural Appalachia and the Gulf South – will share their perspectives on the rapid expansion of “clean energy” solutions. We will discuss what true clean energy looks like for frontline communities facing continued fossil fuel and industrial expansion and explore what a true clean energy economy can look like for future generations.

  • Sun Dance Chief Rueben George, Indigenous community organizer and spiritual leader, Tsleil-Waututh Nation
