Environmental Justice communities pay a greater proportion of their income on home energy bills while bearing the brunt of harm from energy systems.
Pollution Free Energy Systems
Along with our grassroots partners in Minnesota, regionally in the Midwest and nationally, we have been highlighting the need for strong local, state and federal action to transform our energy systems into one that lead to equitable economic, social, environmental and intergenerational outcomes for communities that have historically borne the burden of our extractive energy economy.
Energy planning and policy making has left out the most marginalized communities from decision making processes. State and federal processes often marginalize effective and meaningful participation from low-income communities and communities of color. We produce policy analysis and provide capacity building services to enable true participation from impacted communities in energy planning processes.
