On Wednesday, May 12, Resources for the Future (RFF) and the Urban Institute will host the second event in Exposure, a six-part webinar series on environmental justice. A panel of experts will address issues of energy justice, energy poverty, green jobs, and energy transition communities. The conversation will cover issues that arise on both ends of the energy system—equity in household energy services as well as just transitions for communities whose livelihoods depend on the fossil fuel industry.
