NAACP Energy Justice Workshops

Vote Solar staff supported the planning and execution of several workshops hosted by our partner in the Solar Equity Initiative, the NAACP. Vote Solar was happy to serve as an on site resource in these 2019 workshops, presenting content on energy policy, communication strategies, and organizing tactics, as well as working with participants to create action plans for continued clean energy advocacy in their communities.

Most recently, we appreciated the opportunity to contribute to Energy Justice trainings hosted by the NAACP in Louisiana, Michigan, and Maryland. These trainings are held all over the U.S. and are meant to support the ongoing energy justice work of local NAACP branches. Each training allowed our staff to connect with local leaders and learn from their inspiring community-driven advocacy efforts.

We continue to work with the NAACP in the Solar Equity Initiative and beyond. We look forward to deepening our collaboration in the coming year and supporting additional local NAACP branches in their fight for a more just energy future.
