Minneapolis Mayoral Candidate forum on Local Energy & Climate Justice

September 14, 2021

Listen to mayoral candidates seeking to represent all of Minneapolis on the City Council share their visions how to meet Minneapolis’ local clean energy and climate goals in ways that also benefit key priorities of the city such as housing affordability, renter’s rights, economic, racial & environmental justice, and workforce development for clean energy jobs.

Following the 1h 30 min formal Q & A, at about 8:00 pm we will switch over to a different Zoom address for an informal post-forum conversation in virtual breakout rooms with candidates.

Hosted by Community Power, an energy democracy organization which originated as the 2013 Minneapolis Energy Options campaign that led directly to the City forming its first-in-the-Nation Clean Energy Partnership with Xcel and Centerpoint.

Cohosted by MN BIPOC EJ Table, Minneapolis Climate Action, MNIPL, Health Professionals for a Healthy Climate and Climate Gen: A Will Stegar Legacy.

The beginning will have a guest appearance from FairVote Minnesota, which is a national leader in the movement for Ranked Choice Voting. Rank choice voting is a simple, but powerful change to the way we vote that gives voters more choice and more power.

**Community Power & Co-hosting organizations do NOT endorse candidates. The purpose of these events is to highlight the importance and connectedness of local energy issues and give a platform for residents to educate themselves about what city candidates plan to work on and prioritize**
