Fall and Spring Gatherings
Per our by-laws, each year WNPJ holds two main gatherings; a Fall Assembly and another convening in the Spring. These gatherings help us collective review our work, chart our next steps and strengthen our overall purpose and mission as we move forward.
WNPJ has new yard signs!
WNPJ enjoys public interface at a variety of locations. The network shares the spots we reserve with interested member groups. Recent spaces reserved include the largest farmer’s market in WI at the state capitol in Madison, as well as the MREA annual Energy Fair in Custer, WI (June 23-25, 2023).
Sign-up options for the Saturday morning Dane County Farmer’s Market spots for 2023 here!
WNPJ is committed to grounding in the Just Transition framework
created by the Climate Justice Alliance.
Just Transition is a vision-led, unifying and place-based set of principles, processes and practices that build economic and political power to shift from an extractive economy to a regenerative economy. This means approaching production and consumption cycles holistically and in a waste-free way. The transition itself must be just and equitable, redressing past harms and creating new relationships of power for the future through reparations. If the process of transition is not just, the outcome will never be. Just Transition describes both where we are going and how we get there.
In their own words, Climate Justice Alliance describes the framework:
As WNPJ grounds our work in a Just Transition, we see our role as:
CONNECTOR: Creating opportunities for members to get to know each other and each other’s work.
CATALYST: Sharing educational resources about the Just Transition framework and other innovative visions and actions.
INCUBATOR: Supporting member groups work grounded in Just Transition and other innovative visions and actions.
AMPLIFIER: Investing resources in the vision and leadership of those on the frontlines and most impacted by the extractive economy.
REFLECTION SPACE: Offering opportunities and tools for network members to reflect on their work.
