Liberal Arts lecture | Shalanda Baker
The Liberal Arts division and Nature-Culture-Sustainability graduate program invite the RISD community to a talk by renewable energy expert Shalanda Baker, deputy director for energy justice in the US Department of Energy’s Office of Economic Impact and Diversity. In her book Revolutionary Power: An Activist's Guide to the Energy Transition, Baker arms those made most vulnerable by our current energy system with the tools they need to remake the system in service of their humanity. She argues that people of color, poor people and Indigenous people must engage in the creation of the new energy system in order to upend the unequal power dynamics of the current system.
This event is co-sponsored by the Division of Liberal Arts and the RISD Center for Social Equity & Inclusion.
