Energy transition – providing a soft landing for fossil fuel workers and communities.
A Just Transition
WildEarth Guardians believes it’s time for A Just Transition. That means providing resources for communities to shift to more sustainable, prosperous economies, and for workers to move into more secure and lucrative careers. To that end, we advocate for state, local, and federal legislation and leadership to secure a just transition for all.
