On October 12, 2022, Canary Media hosted a roundtable discussion, moderated by Maria Virginia Olano, with three grassroots leaders who are working to democratize the clean energy revolution in their communities:

The conversation was part of our special series, Power by the People: Clean Energy from the Grassroots. Two of the panelists are featured in stories in the series. Smith’s work is highlighted in this story about Indigenous entrepreneurs and leaders who are embracing clean energy as a way to combat energy poverty and increase economic opportunity in Native communities. Rivera’s former work with Solar United Neighbors, a nonprofit helping people collaborate to rooftop solar systems en masse, is featured in this story.
