As Americans continue to grapple with a long overdue reckoning on racial injustice and inequality, the solar industry must ensure that the clean energy transition addresses environmental justice concerns and supports communities that have been historically left behind. By incorporating these critical concerns into our long-term policy goals, we can build broad coalitions to achieve success, create a sustainable pipeline of diverse talent for the solar workforce, and increase access to the benefits of solar energy. This webinar will explore policy options at multiple levels of government that focus on the intersection between energy and justice, and provide industry stakeholders with ways to get involved in this critically important work.
