Come out to learn about our campaign to get Pittsburgh to commit to and plan for 100% Clean and Renewable Energy with a path to 100 that centers and benefits our most vulnerable communities.

If a town once defined by coal and steel can transition to 100% clean energy in a way that addresses our racial and economic inequity, then why can't everybody? Why can't we have clean job trainings programs in the neighborhoods that most need it, fight for ratepayer justice in our electricity bills, while lowering the healthcare costs of our communities like Homewood suffering from asthma rates twice the national average?

We'll give a general overview of the Ready for 100 campaign nationally and then split into breakout groups to imagine what the campaign can look like in Pittsburgh from coalition building, to media work, to building a swell of public support towards a just and equitable transition.
