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
