Making Justice40 a Reality

October 29, 2021 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM ET

Making Justice40 a Reality, a report authored by scholars and advised by movement leaders, assesses state approaches toward climate and clean energy investments in frontline communities. It identifies key lessons for the federal government’s Justice40 Initiative.

In a webinar for CESA’s 100% Clean Energy Collaborative, a panel of academic and movement leaders involved with the report highlighted the report’s findings and discuss recommendations for a transformative and accountable Justice40 Initiative. This includes recommendations for the initiative’s design framework, implementation guidelines, and program investments. The second half of the hour was devoted to audience questions.
