In July 2019, 36 leaders of energy democracy initiatives across the U.S. convened to build their collective power and advance the movement to democratize energy. This Strategic Convening on Energy Democracy was a collaboration of over 20 local organizations across the U.S. to build stronger relationships and capacities to democratize energy in our country. This national gathering emphasized the centrality of race to energy issues and the goal of empowering our communities through energy democracy.
