Fact vs. Fiction: Renewable Energy for Rural Michigan

We must make climate action a top issue in this pivotal election year. Yet, Michigan is mired in partisan politics, and a potential ballot initiative is aimed at repealing the siting provisions in the 2023 Clean Energy and Jobs Act. At MiCAN, we know that rural does not equal conservative and conservative does not equal anti-renewable energy, and we are seeking partners to build a durable base of climate voters across the state. 

This engaging presentation will provide an energy overview, debunk disinformation and highlight the universal benefits of renewable energy, and provide guidance on how to speak with conservatives about climate change. We are fortunate to be joined by a leading voice from the conservative energy network: Brenden Miller, who serves as Deputy Director of the Land & Liberty Coalition. This coalition supports utility-scale renewable energy developments and "consists of farmers, landowners, and key stakeholders who are concerned about protecting their private property rights, developing their communities, and being good stewards of the land."

Participants will learn how to talk about being a climate voter with friends and neighbors of all political stripes and come away with renewed hope for the future of bipartisan climate action.
