(Facebook) Today's the start of our week long #strikefromhome. For the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, we're asking you to make a protest sign, take a picture with it using the hashtag #StrikeFromHome, tag us @wiconservationvoters and your decision makers, while asking them to commit to 100% clean energy. Let's make a big impact!

Tuesday, April 21 – 4:30 pm

Labor and Clean Energy Forum   As clean energy becomes more affordable and the consequences of inaction become more dire, we can expect to see the clean energy sector grow steadily. Dr. Jon Shelton, a Democracy and Justice Studies professor and labor expert at UW-Green Bay, will join Jesse Michalski, a Project Manager for Eland Electric and member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, to discuss what cross-sections of labor and clean energy could look like in the near future.
