Community Voices in Energy will soon launch a new national training cohort designed to prepare participants to address energy justice issues and make change through energy regulatory cases that affect their communities. Over the course of about eight bi-weekly virtual trainings, we will address and demystify traditional legal intervention in public utility commission proceedings. The program will also broadly present how individuals can bring about a more just and affordable energy system through policy advocacy, organizing, and education. Visiting speakers will share insights from last year’s amazing successes in Illinois. At the end of the program, after participants have completed an Energy Justice Intervenor Project, Community Voices in Energy will provide certification that you have learned about navigating and influencing the energy regulatory system. Please sign up here to commit to this exciting energy justice group learning opportunity.
