Taking bold action to tackle the climate crisis can be a win-win for the environment and the economy. The transition to a green economy has the potential to create millions of jobs, as many 2020 presidential plans show. But how can a green transition ensure that workers’ rights and good jobs are at the center, and that no one is left behind?
Join us on Tuesday, December 3 at 6:00 PM for a thought-provoking panel bringing together experts at the nexus of climate, racial, and economic justice, as well as those experiencing the energy transition directly, to discuss how to usher in a truly just, sustainable, green economy.
