NY - Energy Justice Event in Elmira

In late November, Mothers Out Front and the Elmira Poor People's Campaign collaborated on a powerful event to talk about Energy Justice at the Frederick Douglass Memorial AME Zion Church in Elmira! A crowd of 30 including Mayor Dan Mandell came to hear our two wonderful speakers tell us what alternatives and options we have when energy is a concern. After a potluck supper, we enjoyed singing together followed by the presentations of our special guest speakers, Eileen Hanrahan of Cornell Cooperative Extension and Laurie Wheelock of the Public Utility Law Project (PULP).
