The Groundwork Center’s Michigan Clean Energy Conference and the Michigan Climate Action Network’s (MiCAN) Climate Action Summit are joining forces this year to present the virtual Michigan Climate & Clean Energy Summit, May 24-27. The upcoming summit will bring together Biden Administration and Whitmer Administrative officials, community leaders, activists, policymakers, advocates, and businesses from across Michigan to move forward equitable and ambitious climate and clean energy solutions.
FLOW spoke with MiCAN director Kate Madigan about the summit, climate change in the Great Lakes, the racial equity and environmental justice movement, and what gives her hope.
We also interviewed Madigan on Thursday, May 13, at the Straits of Mackinac, about the 8-year effort to #EvictEnbridge and #ShutDownLine5. Watch that video below.
