The Just Energy Circle, anchored by the Partnership for Southern Equity, is a values-driven coalition of advocacy groups, grassroots organizations, community leaders, clean energy industry leaders and academics working in concert to advance just energy policy across the American South.

Values-Driven Advocacy Drives Our Work

The Just Energy Circle is a diverse coalition of leaders from frontline communities, grassroots and civil rights organizations, subject-matter experts, houses of worship, youth leaders and academia, organized around engaging historically marginalized communities of communities of color to advocate for the equitable sourcing and commodification of power generation in the south. While unfamiliar to many residents, equity-centered energy and utility policies significantly enhance household economic stability and improve the overall quality of air, water, and other natural resources that affect our health and well-being.

The Just Energy Circle works to cultivate relationships with a diverse consortium of leaders who are recognized in prominent decision-making positions within civic and private sectors. Our aim as a systems leader is to be catalyst to policy change that will ensure that all people have access to: clean energy opportunities, low-income protections, fair energy costs, freedom from negative health impacts, enterprise, and access to thriving wage employment.

We believe that this approach is the future of the sustainability movement and that the future of our communities is dependent upon “Just Energy” for all.
