On February 19, Ryan Madden, Sustainability Organizer, Long Island Progressive Coalition (LIPC), will be the guest speaker at LIMBA’s (Long Island Metro Business Action) virtual meeting. The topic will be “Reimagining LIPA & the Municipalization of Power.”
A graduate of Binghamton University, Mr. Madden earned a B.A. in Political Science and Environmental Studies. Prior to his work in sustainability, he focused on electoral politics, campaigning for national and local candidates in his hometown of White Plains and in Binghamton. During his last year in college, Mr. Madden worked for the Energy Conservation Corps of Cornell Cooperative Extension promoting NYSERDA’s Green Jobs Green New York energy efficiency program.
Mr. Madden joined LIPC in September 2015 as a Community Organizer for PowerUp Communities. As the Sustainability Organizer, he leads LIPC’s efforts for energy democracy and climate justice locally and statewide.
For over 42 years, LIPC has worked at the state, local, and national levels to advocate for some of the largest problems our society is currently facing. They pride themselves on taking initiative when it comes to fighting for some of society’s largest issues, such as community wealth, racial injustice and climate change. However, they recognize that creating widespread change is challenging. Therefore, LIPC’s mission is to educate their clients and the general public on ways to take a stance to effectively bring about change.
The meeting begins at 9 a.m. Please visit the LIMBA website to register for the event. Registration is free, but spots for this discussion will be limited.
