Bay Localize is convening a group of local and national leaders at this year's Green Fest to discuss the growing movement toward regional self-reliance. The panel, “Resilience for All”  will be held November 14 and will include keynote speaker Jakada Imani from Oakland's Ella Baker Center.  Our community correspondent reports:

“Global warming, the energy crisis, and economic instability are already reaping devastating impacts on low-income people and communities of color. In the face of these challenges, a growing network of racial justice, environmental, and community resilience leaders are coming together to build a truly inclusive and equitable movement for regional self-reliance.

As a key part of this year's San Francisco Green Festival, “Resilience for All” will showcase the work of a broad cross-section of Bay Area organizers who are working across race and class to forge collaborative campaigns that are preparing our communities for a post-carbon world.”
