The U.S. offshore wind revolution is officially underway. And with it comes a unique opportunity to dramatically reduce carbon emissions, create jobs and build a new — and more just — energy system. How do we do this? And how do we make sure communities of color, women and other underserved populations have a seat at the planning table and can reap the benefits?

As part of our Earth Week coverage, join environmental reporter Miriam Wasser for a conversation about the promises and pitfalls of offshore wind in New England.

Panelists

Darien Johnson—Policy lead, Black Economic Council of Massachusetts

Liz Miranda—Massachusetts State Representative

Dana Rebeiro—Massachusetts liaison, Vineyard Wind
