Energy and Climate Justice

Event Details

Tuesday, November 17, 2020
4:15-5:45 p.m.
The negative economic and environmental impacts of our fossil fuel based energy system have concentrated effects on communities of color. Marginalized groups face disproportionately high levels of pollution and are more vulnerable to the impacts of climate change in addition to systemic disadvantages in energy costs, higher energy burdens, and limited access to renewable energy benefits. Join the Wisconsin Energy Institute for a panel discussion on these topics with remarks from Lt. Gov. Barnes.
