Friend,



It gives me great pleasure to invite you to the *Clean and Fair Economy
Summit*—taking place in Olympia Washington, September 14-15 at the Hotel RL
Olympia!

This unique event will bring together leaders from a diverse coalition of
labor unions, environmental groups, community organizations, businesses,
and local and state governments to seek climate change solutions that grow
the clean economy and build equity and shared prosperity across the West
Coast and across the country.



*Hurry to reserve your spot today for the Clean and Fair Economy Summit
<https://www.bgafoundation.org/programs/clean-and-fair-economy-summit/>!*



This summit will explore the theme Go West! Climate Solutions, Economic
Justice, and the Unstoppable Blue-Green Alliance, and will emphasize the
successes, opportunities, and lessons learned from the States of
Washington, Oregon, and California, in driving a fair and thriving clean
economy.



Group plenary sessions featuring Governor Inslee and other clean economy
leaders, as well as interactive breakout sessions focused on key issues
such as local and state climate policy, infrastructure and clean jobs, fair
trade, and more, are on the agenda. We will also honor several individuals
and organizations with the BlueGreen Champion Award at an awards ceremony
and reception.



We look forward to seeing you there!



*Stephanie Celt*

*Washington State Policy Coordinator*

*BlueGreen Alliance*
