Fresh Energy’s 2022 Virtual Benefit Breakfast

October 13 @ 8:00 am 9:00 am

Reserve your spot today for Fresh Energy’s Virtual Benefit Breakfast, Thursday, October 13, 2022.

Reserve your spot today for Fresh Energy’s Virtual Benefit Breakfast taking place on Thursday, October 13.

Join Fresh Energy and Julian Brave NoiseCat for an inspiring discussion about driving an ambitious—and seemingly impossible—agenda at this critical moment in human history.

All proceeds from this dynamic event will support Fresh Energy’s work to speed the transition to an equitable carbon-neutral economy in Minnesota, the Midwest, and beyond.

Featured Speaker Julian Brave NoiseCat is a nationally acclaimed journalist and thought leader who has become a force for climate action across movements. A member of the Canim Lake Band Tsq’escen, he is grounded in the belief that Indigenous peoples can contribute to understanding and addressing the world’s most pressing challenges. Named to the TIME100 Next list of emerging leaders in 2021, NoiseCat has developed and advocated for ambitious climate policies at Data for Progress and 350.org and had his work published in The New York Times, The Washington Post, and many other publications. Get to know Julian better here!
