The renewable industry has been subject to renewed scrutiny in the wake of uprisings in defense of Black Lives. While the industry responded with statements of solidarity, many thought leaders justifiably pointed out how far we are from realizing the equitable energy future we dream of. Moving in a different direction can seem daunting for an industry so focused on technical solutions. But to continue on the path we are on actively harms frontline communities. Join SEIA, SEPA, and Vote Solar as we discuss the hard work of changing cultures, and building partnerships with frontline communities, communities of color, and low wealth communities.
