Eco-Justice Thread Gathering
January 28 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
Take your seat at the table as we discern together how to move forward in addressing the climate crisis before us!.
The biggest climate law in U.S. history is now in place! Let’s work together to make the most of the Inflation Reduction Act and other opportunities.
Eco-Justice Collaborative and PYM are hosting an online Thread Gathering to explore unprecedented opportunities to mitigate climate disruption. The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) provides tax credits, rebates, grants, and other incentives. This law supports clean transportation and energy in our homes, meetings, and under-resourced communities.
Start planning in break-out rooms with experts. Advance documents will be available to inform your decisions.
