Green and Black: Equity in the Clean Energy Future
Time & Location
About the Event
Join us at Portland's first and only "green building" owned and operated by African-American women--the June Key Delta Community Center-- for a community conversation about how the Portland Clean Energy Community Benefits Fund and other resources are being developed to create equitable access to the clean energy future. As part of Portland's 2nd Annual Sustainable Building Week, attendees will learn about the history of the June Key Delta Community Center and the importance of sustainability to one group of African-American women. Guests and panelists from local government, environmental justice, and equity organizations will discuss how people of color can constructively challenge and influence how decisions are made regarding access to clean energy funds and work together to construct more green buildings in traditionally marginalized communities.
