Actualizing Equity 2021 Recap: Climate & Environmental Justice

Envisioned by the Climate Justice Alliance, Just Transition is a framework focused on shifting from an extractive economy to a regenerative economy. As we emerge from a year of intense COVID restrictions, we know this moment must be a pivot toward the just transition necessary to address the growing climate crisis and repair generations of extraction and environmental harm to communities of color. 

At our May 2021 Actualizing Equity event, we discussed just transition with Janiece Watts (Fresh Energy), Sam Grant (MN350), Robert Blake (Solar Bear), mk nguyen (Nexus Community Partners) and Emilia Gonzalez Avalos (Unidos MN).
