North Berkeley Address after RSVP Berkeley, CA 94708


Mainstream environmental organizations are aggressively clamoring for a transition to 100% renewable energy. What is getting lost amidst all this activity is the transformation in economic and political life needed to make that renewable energy goal meaningful.

Join Crystal Huang to explore how communities, through cross-pollinating with each other, have the power and solutions we need for change. These solutions reflect that it is not enough to simply decarbonize our economy, we have to decolonize our economy. From Oakland, CA to Jackson, MS to New York, NY, a revolutionary movement to democratize energy is happening. Energy democracy is a way to frame the struggle of working people, low-income communities, and communities of color, and their allies, to take control of energy resources and decision-making from the corporate energy establishment and use those resources to empower their communities.

This interactive session will explore the power of local communities and how we can leverage that to cross-pollinate for a future we want to live in.
