We provide free education through resources, curriculums and events to mobilize climate-impacted communities to participate in the movement to revolutionize the energy system.
Our community resources are made available to create transparency around our co-learning to revolutionize the energy system through justice, equity, belonging, diversity, access and inclusion.
We are grateful for the researchers who have led research and innovation for justice in climate-impacted communities. Racism and climate change have the same roots. For this reason and countless more, it’s impossible to address the climate crisis without addressing racism. Join us in reading foundational research into energy, environmental and racial justice below.
