Lifting up Community Voices in State Administrate Proceedings [RJ]

This session is designed to discuss the importance of engagement by community organizations and other community voices in proceedings before state agencies and to identify the barriers that prevent engagement and how to overcome them. While the focus will be work performed before state and public utility commissions, the techniques will be applicable to many clients seeking to be more involved in proceedings before administrative agencies in their state. The session will address questions such as: Why is democratizing utility advocacy important? How do community groups make the process more accessible to affected voices? How do we build capacity for those who historically have been left out of regulatory proceedings to effectively intervene? The session seeks to provide a vision for a paradigm shift to a regulatory process that centers the voices of clients and the community.
