Meet the Fest

Meet The Canary Coalition

Get Off the Grid Fest would like to welcome The Canary Coalition – sponsors to the lineup! 

The Canary Coalition is a grassroots, non-profit organization that advocates for policies, laws and regulations promoting a transformation from the use of polluting, health and environmentally damaging resources to safe, renewable and regenerative resources that provide for energy, transportation, agricultural and recreational human needs. We have been involved in community organizing in western North Carolina since 2000.

Executive Director, Avram Friedman, will be speaking about pending legislation initiated by The Canary Coalition in the current session of the NC General Assembly, including the North Carolina version of the Green New Deal, the Efficient and Affordable Energy Rates Bill and the NC We the People Act.  You can hear Avram’s presentation “The Green New Deal and Other Legislative Issues in NC” on Saturday at 2:30 in the presentation tent.
