The agenda will include conversations about how we can win up and down the ballot in November, panels about protecting democracy; and sessions digging into critical issues like abortion access, the economy, climate change and gun reform. There will also be lots of content highlighting organizing efforts in Baltimore. 




Our Presentation:


Along with the Word Resources Institute, Data4Progress, the Black Appalachian Coalition, and The Nature Conservancy, we will be speaking on a panel titled, Building Community-First Climate Infrastructure.


DESCRIPTION:

As federal officials distribute funding from the Inflation Reduction Act and Bipartisan Infrastructure Law for new climate infrastructure projects that range from growing sustainable manufacturing to upgrading electric transmission lines, community benefits plans (CBPs) and community benefits agreements (CBAs) offer opportunities for communities to benefit from the equitable and just deployment of much-needed climate infrastructure.

This panel will explore the challenge of building community- and justice- forward infrastructure, offering national and local insights into how policymakers, advocates, developers, and other stakeholders can successfully engage communities, deliver benefits, and build at the scale and standard necessary for an equitable energy transition.




As we work to build power and create change in our communities, connecting at Netroots Nation will provide a boost of energy we all need to keep doing the work.
