Join us for Lighting the Path: AAPI Leaders Powering Up the Energy Justice Movement this August 11, 2023 to explore the rich history of islands around the world, and how it has led to a powerful movement for energy justice. From Hawai’i to the Philippines, islands have a rich history of power, honor, and connection to the natural world. For centuries, island communities have honored the planet and fought to protect their resources from the exploitation of mainlands. Despite facing the challenges of colonialism and exploitation, these communities have fostered a movement for Energy Justice that has proven stronger than their opponents.
At Lighting the Path, you will have the opportunity to hear from Steph Speirs, Councilwoman Keani Rawlins, and Crystal Huang as they share their home island’s knowledge and experiences, moderated by Kristy Drutman, or Brown Girl Green. They will explore how their community inspired their work in the field, the spirit of fighting for utility justice, and revolutionizing energy to serve their communities. By attending this event, you will gain a deeper understanding of the unique challenges faced by island nations and the innovative solutions they have developed to achieve Energy Justice. This event is hosted by Solstice Power Technologies, Energy Allies, and Green 2.0.
