City Council passed a motion last year directing LADWP to study 100% renewable energy for Los Angeles, and a lot has happened in the meantime. Join the NCSA on Saturday, July 15 to hear from experts and local advocates about the status of the study, what’s next for LA, and how you and your Neighborhood Council can take action on initiatives to green our ports and curb neighborhood drilling.

We’ll also set aside time for networking and discussion.

All welcome, though space is limited, so please RSVP HERE today!
