It is a short video on how DC passed a bill to take the district to 100% clean energy through a coalition that partnered with the low-income community. We can do this in Delaware.
Washington D.C. just made climate history last month by passing a landmark bill that will allow the city to undergo a rapid, just transition away from dirty fossil fuels to a 100% clean, renewable energy future. Years of coalition-building with local climate, energy, and environmental justice leaders, made the bill a victory for climate justice and social equity. The success of this Fossil Free campaign was largely attributed to intentional coalition building with low income community members, in order to ensure that all voices were considered in pushing for this victory. CCAN, Sierra Club, Interfaith Power and Light, NRDC, Citizen Climate Lobby and more were essential to this effort along with 350 DC.
City by city, town by town, we’re ending the age of fossil fuels and building a world of community-led renewable energy for all.
