Event Description

Alliance for Jobs and Clean Energy supporter organizations RE Sources for Sustainable Communities, Washington BlueGreen Alliance, Community to Community Development, and Washington Environmental Council are co-hosting a forum “Fund the solutions, price the pollution: The future of climate policy in Washington state” from 6:30 - 8 p.m. on Tuesday, June 20, at Bellingham Unitarian Fellowship, 1207 Ellsworth St, Bellingham (map).

The Alliance for Jobs and Clean Energy is a statewide coalition of individuals, organizations, and businesses dedicated to reducing global warming pollution, strengthening the economy, and making sure all families have a better future.

The Alliance is advancing a statewide policy initiative for 2018 to reduce carbon emissions and build a clean energy future. The initiative would invest in clean energy, clean water, and healthy forests, by implementing a performance-based tax on major polluters, while providing investment for disproportionately impacted communities and a just transition for workers.

Rosalinda Guillen, Executive Director of Community to Community Development and Steering Committee Member of the Alliance for Jobs and Clean Energy, will give a short introduction. Forum speakers include:

  • Sameer Ranade, Climate and Clean Energy Campaign Associate at Washington Environmental Council
  • Steve Garey, Steering Committee Member of the Washington BlueGreen Alliance, and retired refinery worker and union president of the United Steelworkers Local 12-591
  • Edgar Franks, Civic Engagement Program Coordinator at Community to Community Development
  • Eddy Ury, Clean Energy Program Manager at RE Sources for Sustainable Communities
