Climate Change and Labor: Challenges and Opportunities
What impacts will the transition to a low-carbon economy have on workers, their families and communities?
The League of Women Voters of Berkeley, Albany, and Emeryville, and three Bay Area chapters of the Citizens’ Climate Lobby will host a forum that looks at the effects of climate-related policy on unionized labor.
A panel of 4 labor union leaders and 2 climate policy experts will discuss these effects. They will also examine policies and strategies that can best serve all workers, their families and communities.
A question and answer period will immediately follow the panel discussion. Attendees are encouraged to arrive at 6:30 to meet and mingle, and stay after the Q&A for follow-up conversations. Snacks and refreshments will be served.
