Minneapolis community members have been organizing for the last two years for greater local control and benefit over our energy system. This event will be a great opportunity to learn about what has been accomplished and the opportunities ahead as the city of Minneapolis begins an innovative, first in the nation city-utility partnership. Community education is key to building a base of effective advocates to ensure that Minneapolis’ partnership will be effective in accomplishing significant change next year.
We stand in solidarity with communities on the front line of fossil fuel extraction to present a vision for a clean energy future that enhances life and honors the common good of a global community on a healthy planet.
