Part I: Sowing the Seeds

The current, extractive economy has been built upon centuries of extraction of the land, labor, and resources of Black, Indigenous and People of Color. At the same time, the very communities on the frontlines of multiple crises--economic, climate, and racial injustice--have been at the forefront of the solution.
Richmond, California is one of the communities that is modeling what just transition looks like through the visionary leadership of the Richmond Power Coalition (ROPC).
ROPC is comprised of nine base-building organizations, who are building political, economic, cultural, and people power to achieve a just transition to a living, local economy that drives racial justice and social equity and democratizes wealth and the workplace.
This series is free of charge, though we ask for donations to the Richmond Just Transition Fund to resource the community-led just transition solutions we need now.
Closed captioning in English and ASL interpretation will be available. This session will be recorded and distributed to all registrants.
