Polluting and Providing: The Dirty Energy Dilemma - Livestream

The cost and health burdens of electricity production have long been higher for low-income communities of color than for wealthy white ones. But when it comes to public engagement and trust, the oil and gas industry is often ahead of its clean energy competitors, presenting a friendly face to the same areas it supplies with jobs, tax dollars, and cheap energy. Is the industry an example of community leadership, manipulative greenwashing - or something in between?

Is the fossil fuel industry producing economic benefits for local communities at the same rate as they produce pollution? How can the renewables industry transform its model into one of diversity, equity, and affordable energy for all? Join us for a conversation with Derrick Hollie, president of Reaching America, and Jaqueline Patterson, director of the NAACP Environmental and Climate Justice program, on hard truths about the energy industry next door.

Panel: Derrick Hollie, Reaching America; Jacqueline Patterson, NAACP; Greg Dalton, Climate One
