Join us as we round out our celebration of Earth month with the official launch of the Clean Energy Civic Dinners series, sponsored by the Georgia Sierra Club, and in partnership with the Partnership for Southern Equity, and Environment Georgia.
Over the next three months conversations will be happening in coffee houses, at dinner tables, in living rooms, and across Greater Atlanta, about how the city of Atlanta is planning their transition to 100% clean energy by 2035. Learn how you can be a part of a local solution to climate change and ensure a just and equitable transition to a clean energy economy.
Following the panel discussion, we will screen Reinventing Power, the groundbreaking documentary that will take you across the country to meet people whose lives were changed by clean energy.
Produced by the Sierra Club and Transit Pictures, this film takes us across the country to hear directly from the people making our clean energy future achievable. These individuals are working to rebuild what’s broken, rethink what’s possible, and revitalize communities.
Over the film’s 50 minutes, you’ll meet people in eight states whose lives were changed by the renewable energy industry while exploring various aspects of the clean energy industry from innovation to installation.
We will be serving light snacks, gourmet popcorn, beer, and wine.
About Our Partners:
Founded by legendary conservationist John Muir in 1892, the Sierra Club is now the nation's largest and most influential grassroots environmental organization. What makes the Sierra Club unique is that we have the grassroots power to win with 3.5 million members and supporters, 64 Chapters, and over 400 groups. Our successes range from protecting millions of acres of wilderness to helping pass the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and Endangered Species Act. More recently, we've made history by leading the charge to move away from the dirty fossil fuels that cause climate disruption and toward a clean energy economy.
In the summer of 2018, the Georgia Sierra Club celebrated 35 years of protecting Georgia’s beautiful unique landscape. Our chapter is the largest grassroots environmental organization in the state of Georgia. Georgia Sierra Club members and supporters are more than 75,000 of your friends and neighbors. We have a robust outings program and have active committees working on forest and coastal protection, transit expansion, and clean energy. Inspired by nature, we work together to protect our communities and the planet.
