Why is Soulardarity beneficial for Highland Park, Detroit and Energy Consumers of SE Michigan?

Soulardarity (est. 2012) stands behind our mission to demonstrate that Highland Park, MI can serve as a national model for community-scale clean energy and just transition.

Soulardarity created 6 Standards for a Community-based Solidarity in 2017 to detail our Socio-economic values for (re)building in Highland Park and Surrounding areas. These standards were generated during a teambuilding activity at a  Membership Meeting references actionable headers adopted from the Jemez Principles (1986), they guides us in preparing communities to  build clean energy infrastructure and jobs, rebuild its economy, strength city and community capacity, and usher in local, regional, state and federal support to achieve JUST outcomes related to:

    The Community Solar link is dead. Would love to hear what you are doing with that. Would love to see something like that come together in Brightmoor.
