Please join us this Saturday for a lively conversation with two leaders at the intersection of labor and climate justice. Then stay for the rest of the weekend's activities!
Bridging the Labor-Climate Divide
Saturday, October 12,[masked]:30 am – 11:00 am
The moment is ripe for two of the nation’s most powerful movements – labor and climate – to find new ways of working together to build a long-term vision for a new economy that is good for workers and the planet. Our panelists – active at intersection of both movements – will discuss strategies regarding immediate challenges, such as the Keystone XL pipeline, hopeful initiatives and bold experiments to help bridge the historical gap between these important progressive players.
