Working people across the United States have stepped up to help out our friends, neighbors and communities during these trying times. In our regular Service + Solidarity Spotlight series, we’ll showcase one of these stories every day. Here’s today’s story.
The Labor Energy Partnership (LEP), an effort led by the AFL-CIO and the Energy Futures Initiative, released a new report on Tuesday focused on building clean energy infrastructure in the Ohio River Valley region that preserves and creates good union jobs. This report comes on the heels of a workshop hosted by the LEP in July, when it convened leaders from sectors, including government, labor and industry, to discuss hydrogen and carbon capture and storage projects. This was an exciting step toward the LEP’s goal of hosting a series of place-based workshops that drive the will of leaders to take on local, equitable solutions to the climate crisis that support and grow union jobs.
