Sunrise El Paso

$5,000 to support a Latino/a youth-led community organizing and movement building strategy to resist a potential JP Morgan Chase buyout of the El Paso Electric Company through a private equity fund, which would likely lead to increased fracking, as well as address the overall threats of a privatized electric utility that only permits 3% renewable energy, a city government that allows for the El Paso refinery’s petroleum apparatus to emit toxic gases, and a new natural gas plant on the horizon. Resisting the JP Morgan buyout also provides an opportunity for a cultural shift towards the development of a localized version of the Green New Deal.
