South Bay Clean Power Working Group Chair, Joe Galliani, was a keynote speaker at the May 31 Climate Action Santa Monica forum on Community Choice Power and here are the first, exclusive sneak peak video clips from the event which drew a standing-room-only audience.
Climate Action Santa Monica’s video team is editing the polished video of the entire event, but in this first clip from the raw footage, Joe explains the origin of South Bay Clean Power’s initiative and touches on its one year history:
