Populist Dialogues - 17-44 - Just Energy Transitions Initiative - how we get to clean energy and just jobs creations

Guest Anais Tuepker talks about the proposed Portland Just Energy Transition initiative petition for the City of Portland. Noting that environmental groups and communities of color have not in the past worked together, she says that this has been written by a collaboration between them. It would apply a 1% surcharge on the business license fee of national and multinational retail business with revenue of over $1 billion with the funds being used for retrofitting existing homes for energy efficiency on residential structures with a target of homes of communities of color, included multi-family buildings. Job training would also be focused on. And local food production could also be a target area.
