Webinar: Wildfires, Shutoffs, and a Just Transition

On Tuesday, Nov 5th, Movement Generation hosted a live webinar to discuss the wildfires and PG&E shutoffs in California, and to hear from current organizing happening in the Bay Area to build real, on-the-ground solutions.

As Californians go through the shock of this year’s wildfire crisis, we are once again hustling to respond and recover while making sense of this ‘new normal’. We are experiencing the consequences of deep ecological and economic devastation created by the racist, capitalist extractive economy.

We are also witnessing those on the frontlines answering it with radical resistance and resilience – building solutions and people power towards a Just Transition.

Speakers included:

Tré Vasquez from North Bay Organizing Project / Sanación del Pueblo
Stacey Park from Disability Justice Culture Club
Mari Rose Taruc from the Reclaim Our Power Utility Justice Campaign

Hosted and moderated by Ellen Choy of Movement Generation
