The three panelists are:
- Jeff Hammarlund: Policy Advisor and Professor Portland State University
- Christy Splitt: State of Oregon Dept of Energy
- State of Oregon Environmental Justice Council representative
The panel will explore recent federal legislation, especially the Inflation Reduction Act, to show opportunities for action by Oregonians to mitigate the climate emergency. Some questions that will be addressed are: What programs are included for greenhouse gas reduction? How will Oregon benefit in terms of clean renewable energy? How can organizations, households and individuals benefit? What are the opportunities to improve environmental justice for communities of color and low-income communities in Oregon?
