Wed., Jul. 5 – Public Trust with Julia Olson How can we “flip the script” in our nonviolent direct actions, making it clear that the fossil fuel industry and the government that does their bidding are unlawful, and that we are upholding the constitution and the public trust? Use of the Public Trust Doctrine for climate protection has been pioneered by young people represented by Our Children’s Trust.

 

Mon. Jul. 10 – Just Transition – How can we organize to avoid letting our opponents pit jobs, workers, and unions against climate, water and community protection? How can we build “just transition” that includes a better future for workers who produce and use fossil fuels, construction workers who build fossil fuel infrastructure, and communities that depend on them? With Richard Lipsitz, President. Western New York Area Labor Federation, AFL-CIO.
