This is a virtual event
The Tennessee Valley Authority talks a good game about being public power, but they are simply not walking the walk. The TVA has stopped having public listening sessions where we the people can actually make our voices heard!
So, we’ve decided that we’ll just hold our own hearing- The People’s TVA Hearing!
There are so many crucial and urgent issues facing us right now in the Valley:
How do we reduce high energy burdens so people can afford their energy bills? How will TVA deal with continued cleanup and storage of toxic coal ash and keep workers and community members safe? Will TVA remain wedded to fossil fuels or move rapidly to clean energy? Will TVA commit to growing and expanding union jobs?
Join the Tennessee Valley Energy Democracy Movement and our partners, community members, advocates, and experts as we discuss all these important issues and more.
The hearing will feature opportunities for people to deliver public comments as well as facilitated breakout discussions to dive deeper and discuss specific issues together in smaller groups with fellow citizens and issue experts.
