Join us on Sunday, March 13th at 7pm for a panel about energy justice with Rafael Mojica from Soulardarity, Gloria Jean Lowe from We Want Green Too, and Bridget Vial from The Michigan Environmental Justice Coalition.
Soulardarity works with the Highland Park community through education and organizing to bring people-powered clean energy. They are working to install solar-powered streetlights, save money on energy bills, and work together with neighboring communities to build a just and equitable energy system for all.
We Want Green, Too is on the ground making sure no Veteran is left behind. They are creating an inclusive, safe, sustainable and energy efficient community space to serve our Veterans and Detroit’s East Side. This is a space in which our Veterans and community members can build environmental literacy, obtain "green job readiness" to become leaders of the emerging green economy, and return to communities as productive citizens.
The Michigan Environmental Justice Coalition has been working on the “Work for ME, DTE” campaign. In 2018, the communities of SE Michigan were barraged with natural gas permits. MEJC took a stand, and helped anchor the Work for ME, DTE to respond to the rush to gas, with other local grassroots organizations. At the center of the campaign is health, affordability, and community solar to build a resilient future.
This program will be an opportunity for us to do a deep dive into energy justice, an aspect of environmental justice work that affects us all.
Zoom information will be sent the day of the event at 5pm.
