Energy Democracy comrades gather
Soulardarity July 3·
We are beyond honored to have hosted this convening of visionary, boots-on-the-ground, people-powered grassroots leaders for Energy Democracy! This movement is growing, and it's black and brown and indigenous and working class communities driving it forward. We are claiming victory. We are claiming a just transition that stops climate change and repairs the harms wrought by monopoly capitalism, white supremacy, and the fossil fuel economy. From every corner of this country, and to allies across the globe, we are organizing to make this vision real. Onward! — with Darryl E. Jordan, Shiva Patel, Maria Martin-Thomas, Jacqui Patterson, Johanna Bozuwa, Anthony Giancatarino, Jonathan Wesley Hutto, Timothy Den Herder-Thomas, Jesse James Deer In Water, Subin DeVar and Gibran DuBois Washington.
