Please join our next Action Meeting on Thursday, Sept. 8th at 6 pm on Zoom. See link below.
We’ll start with special guest, Amy Wheeless, from the Northwest Energy Coalition will share “Washington’s Energy Landscape and Future” aka Energy 101: How clean is our power? What are our challenges? What more can we do? What is our vision for future electricity?
Amy Wheeless works at the NW Energy Coalition, a nonprofit alliance of around 100 environmental, civic, and human service organizations, progressive utilities, and businesses in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, and British Columbia. The Coalition advocates for clean and affordable energy, promoting development of renewable energy and access to energy conservation, consumer protection policies, low-income energy assistance, and fish and wildlife restoration. At the Coalition, Amy leads and coordinates policy efforts on energy efficiency and utility system planning in Washington State to advance sustainable programs and policies that work for all. Prior to joining the Coalition in 2017, Amy worked as a consultant on various environmental and energy issues for utilities, trade associations, governmental agencies, and nonprofits. Originally from North Carolina, Amy has called Washington State home since 2005.
Then, we’ll share reports about recent events including the Othello Park Festival, the Defenders of North SeaTac Park Birthday, and updates about local, state and federal wins and opportunities for action including the new funding to protect our health and climate from pollution and electrify our homes, vehicles and more.
We’ll end with our open forum to discuss the 37th LD open legislative seat, your news and views.
