Held on the last day of the Our Power National Convening, the Day of Action will amplify the grassroots-led solutions of Richmond and other communities on the frontlines of energy injustice and social injustice. Richmond is part of a growing national campaign called the Our Power Campaign, where communities on the frontline of environmental pollution are asserting Our Power to build local living economies that work for people and the planet.Added to the calendar on Thursday Jul 31st, 2014 4:54 PM
Richmond-based organizations and the Our Power Campaign are now calling on everyone to join them in building this just transition. The Our Power Day of Action 2014 will raise up the voices of Richmond community members to realize their visions of the future. Together we can not only stop the expansion of dangerous, polluting refineries and pipelines, but begin a just transition away from fossil fuels and towards clean energy, good jobs, and healthy thriving communities.
The day’s schedule will include a community march to the Richmond Greenway, a community speak out/rally, a festival of community-led “solutions” inspired and anchored by some of the local work happening in Richmond, culminating in a solar powered concert called “unplug the empire” which will happen in partnership with Urban Tilth and others at the 16th St. entrance of the Richmond Greenway.
