Webinar Recording: Green Jobs through the Green New Deal

With the Cities of Los Angeles and New York City passing their own versions of the Green New Deal, there is a lot of momentum and real opportunity to move forward on renewable energy and green jobs at the local level. What are the common barriers to creating these green jobs and how can local governments leverage policy to make sure that frontline communities get the benefits? Christy Veeder from Jobs to Move America will discuss policy infrastructure and strategies that can create local green jobs and challenges that need to be addressed through extensive stakeholder engagement. Jessica Tovar from the Local Clean Energy will present a case study from community organizing efforts to bring local clean energy to the Bay Area through the East Bay Community Energy, the community choice aggregation program.
