Join Valley Vision on February 13th for our Building a Community-Centered Clean Economy event! This hybrid gathering brings together a second Climate, Justice, and Jobs Summit, while celebrating and launching the Sacramento Region Community Economic Resilience Fund (CERF) planning efforts. This invitation is open to everyone, including community members, regional workforce and economic development stakeholders. The event will feature a video presentation from our Community First Listening Series and a live Community Panel discussion to speak directly to the CERF’s goals of creating high quality, accessible jobs in low carbon industries, with an emphasis on including those who are typically not represented in economic development processes. The CERF program presents a concrete opportunity to develop strategies, as well as create a path for community members to continue participating in this work.
Join us in person at the Mack Powell Event Center or via Zoom for those attending virtually.
RSVP today to join the conversation and help strengthen our region’s efforts to build an inclusive and green economy.
The Climate Justice and Jobs (“CJJ”) Summit will surface challenges and barriers to accessing and thriving in clean economy careers – careers that are future focused, green-oriented and have high wages and benefits. Valley Vision held a series of in-person events in Sacramento, Yolo, and Placer counties to hear from community members directly and will now bring those voices to the forefront to share with jurisdictions, training partners, workforce stakeholders and legislators to foster the development of inclusive career pathways.
The Community Economic Resilience Fund (“CERF”) program advances regional economic recovery and resilience strategies that prioritize the creation of accessible, high-quality jobs in sustainable industries. The Kick-Off launches a two-year planning process that will be used to stand up a High Road Transition Collaborative (“Collaborative”) – a planning group that consists of diverse representation throughout the region – and a regional economic development plan.
