ABOUT US

As a Black and Brown led coalition we work to bridge the equity gap in energy and climate justice arenas to ensure inclusivity from the inception to implementation of policies and proposed energy reforms. We engage stakeholders in utilizing an “Equity Lens” to understand the impact, sense of urgency, and landscape of proposed policies on local communities statewide. We advocate for and educate the local community so that they are at the forefront of energy conversations that impact health, affordability and opportunity.

Progressive 

Actively create direct routes to a higher quality of life for traditionally exploited communities through evaluating and re-envisioning the status quo.  

 

Equitable 

Rebuilding systems so traditionally exploited communities lead the conversations on eliminating barriers to access, eradicate power structures that deny generational growth and create pathways for specific transitions to meet their needs.

 

Energy

Creating a systemically sustainable pathway to renewable energy and green jobs that powers our lives and supports the health of our communities, planet, and ourselves.
