This online conference consists of two daily sessions: Oct 22, 10 AM – 2 PM Central, with a 45-minute lunch break; and Oct. 23, 8 AM – 12:15 PM.
We are looking for people who are tired of spending all their money to pay the light and gas bill. We are looking for people who are concerned about their neighbor, who pays up to 12% of their income to utilities. We are looking for people who are tired of seeing their community sick and in distress. We are looking for people who are ready to work together to hold those who were elected to protect them accountable and to raise awareness of those on the local level who have the power to make it stop. Together, we are Energizing the South for Energy Justice.
Assumed audience: Faith Leaders who may or may not be familiar with EJ, Climate Change or Energy Equity. Our focus will be on building awareness.
