Upcoming Group Meeting 

December: Electric Vehicle Infrastructure, and Energy Justice 

LOCATION: Online (RSVP here)

TIME: Tuesday, December 13th, 2022: 7pm-9pm

FEATURED SPEAKER: Justin Brightharp (advocate), and Neil Sardana (senior Beyond Coal organizer)


Whether motivated by the climate crisis or high gas prices, many are turning to electric vehicles (EVs). The federal government is funding the buildout of some of the infrastructure that would make more widespread adoption of EV use possible.

But with electric utilities still burning coal and gas, the social and environmental costs of battery production, high electricity bills, and car-centric sprawl continuing apace, what can we do to avoid merely electrifying the pitfalls of the status quo?

Come to our Nov. 15 meeting to learn about electric vehicle infrastructure and discuss how we can push for energy justice, including in our transportation system.

We’ll hear from Justin Brightharp, an advocate who is highly informed on EV policy, on how federal funds for EVs (such as from the Inflation Reduction Act) are being distributed and used. We will also learn from Neil Sardana, senior organizer with Sierra Club’s Beyond Coal campaign, about the current Georgia Power rate case and opportunities to take action for energy justice in the short and longer term.

We'll also discuss other ways to take action and upcoming events and opportunities.
