Join the Michigan Environmental Justice Coalition tomorrow, Tuesday (11/16) for the latest installment of Talk to a Troublemaker with the Work for Me, DTE crew! Michelle Jones, Mama Shu, and Layla Elabed will talk about community solar — and how its benefits, like healthier communities, lower bills, and stopping shutoffs, come directly from community control.
Layla & Michelle will shed light on the latest on DTE’s latest efforts to obstruct community solar, and evade accountability for massive power outages this summer. Together, MEJC, Soulardarity, and We the People MI traveled to Lansing last month to testify at the House Energy Committee’s hearing on power outages. Chair Bellino — who, among 11 of the committee members, accepted $1000 from a DTE PAC within days of the hearing — denied us the chance to speak.
Bring your questions and perhaps, an end-of-day snack. You can join us via Zoom or tune in on Facebook Live.
