Dear Friends,

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.

Ananda Lee Tan, US and Canada Regional Coordinator, Global Alliance for Incinerator Alternatives; activist, organizer and rabble-rouser
