What Does a Just Transition Look Like; How Do We Get There?

SDIPN at the Left Forum Conference 2016
Saturday, May 21st, 12:00 PM – 1:50 PM
John Jay College, 524 W. 59th St. New York, NY / Rm 1.87

There has been much talk in recent years about Just Transition: providing training and employment for workers moving from the fossil fuel and nuclear industries into new green, alternative, sustainable jobs. It sounds great. We seem to have a vague idea of what Just Transition means but how we get there still needs a lot of work and planning. A program for just transition needs to be developed with the help of environmental activists, workers, and elected officials. Our panel will ask the questions and try to provide some of the answers and requirements for creating the framework to take Just Transition from a vision statement to a reality.

SDIPN at the 2015 Left Forum

left_forum

SDIPN will be presenting a panel at this year’s Left Forum from May 29 – 31, hosted by John Jay College of Criminal Justice. The theme this year is “No Justice, No Peace: Confronting the Crises of Capitalism and Democracy.”

We’ll make the connection between the Black Lives Matter Movement and groups like SDIPN that are fighting for environmental justice by confronting the lies and distortions that  corporations like Entergy are distributing in communities of color in their effort to promote nuclear energy as a “clean and green” alternative to fossil fuels.

The date and time of our panel has not yet been announced. Check back for further information as we receive it.
