An Activist’s Guide to the Energy Transition
Shalanda H. Baker
- Professor of Law, Public Policy and Urban Affairs, Northeastern University
Shalanda Baker is the co-director and co-founder of the Initiative for Energy Justice at Northeastern University.
Her book, Revolutionary Power, is a playbook for the energy transformation, complete with a step-by-step analysis of energy policy areas that are ripe for intervention. Baker argues that people of color, poor people, and indigenous people must engage in creating a new energy system to upend the unequal power dynamics of the current system.
Join us as Baker explains how this unique moment in history provides an unprecedented opening for a deeper transformation of the energy system, and thus, an opportunity to transform society.
