Working class struggles against climate change: union stories from the frontline

In-Person

In Chile, France, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Scotland, Trinidad and Tobago, South Africa and elsewhere, unions are fighting neoliberal energy policies that are not only failing to bring about cleaner, more sustainable economies we need, but are actually hindering the transition.
Join us to hear from unions defending green jobs, supporting national energy sovereignty, striking against the privatization of public energy companies, and other efforts that reflect the day-to-day battles to prioritize human and ecological needs over profit and to stop climate change.
