Marie Donahue is a research associate at the Institute for Local Self-Reliance with its Energy Democracy and Community-Scaled Economy Initiatives. In this role, Marie supports communities investing in distributed energy systems and locally owned businesses.
Matt Weaver has over a decade experience in renewable energy, including hydrogen and solar, and grassroots organizing around social justice and sustainability.

At SR, we understand the intimate link between fighting polluting diesel and truck transportation, and simultaneously creating what's needed in our communities.
This transition might include the Solutionary Rail approach to harnessing clean distributed energy for electric trains for passengers and freight in impacted neighborhoods across the country, and crafting just, sustainable, green local economy opportunities such as community solar, composting, community gardens, zero waste, and locally owned, family supporting careers and independent businesses.
After the interview, Bill Moyer, Project Lead and the SR Tech Team will give an update on the project.
RSVP and plan to join the call, at 5 pm (Pacific).
