Just Solar: A People’s Movement Assembly

February 10, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 pm

Join National NAACP Environmental Justice Director Jacqui Patterson and the Minnesota Just Solar Coalition for Just Solar: A People’s Movement Assembly on March 10th!

Join us on March 10th to share your vision of a “Just Solar” Economy. We’ll hear from NAACP Environmental Justice Director about what is happening around the nation, and then we’ll meet local leaders and have a conversation about what access, workforce development and public policy solutions will bring about authentic equity in the developing solar arena.

RSVP here

Using the wisdom we hear at the People’s Movement Assembly the Just Solar Coalition will work to create and test a tool, the “Just Solar Standard” designed to drive the industry to improve hiring practices and create access. As we test the tool we will refine our understanding of the barriers and bridges to success and will work to mitigate some of those problems.
