Virginia Building Back Better: Charting the Course to an Equitable Clean Economy

Monday, October 5th, 7:00pm ET

As we work to build back better, how can America forge an equitable and clean energy future, addressing environmental injustices and creating new economic opportunities for disadvantaged communities while rapidly decarbonizing? Virginia can serve as a model for this clean and equitable transition. Between policies like the Clean Economy Act and the Clean Energy Advisory Board, the Commonwealth has already laid the foundation, but there's much that remains to be done. 

This event will bring together clean energy elected leaders in the General Assembly, business pioneers, and champions of diversity, equity, and inclusion to discuss how we use policy, technology, workforce development, and more to accelerate the transition while empowering communities of color, low-income populations, and historically disadvantaged groups. Join us!
