Baker, IEJ's Co-Founder and Co-Director and author of the new book 'Revolutionary Power: An Activist's Guide to the Energy Transition,' for a discussion and Q&A session with Co-Founder and Co-Director Subin DeVar.

Baker tells the stories of those who have been left behind in our current system and those who are working to be architects of a more just system. She draws from her experience as an energy-justice advocate, a lawyer, and a queer woman of color to inspire activists working to build our new energy system.

These new leaders will direct policy at DOE, coordinate across the Administration, and enact President Joe Biden’s vision for bold action on the climate crisis and on safeguarding the Americans most affected by it.
