Baker Harnesses “Revolutionary Power” in New Book
1.12.21 — In Revolutionary Power: An Activist’s Guide to the Energy Transition (Island Press, 2021), Professor Shalanda Baker ’05 arms those made most vulnerable by our current energy system with the tools they need to remake the system in the service of their humanity. She argues that people of color, poor people and indigenous people must engage in the creation of the new energy system in order to upend the unequal power dynamics of the current system. Baker tells the stories of those who have been left behind in our current system and those who are working to be architects of a more just system. She draws from her experience as an energy-justice advocate, a lawyer and a queer woman of color to inspire activists working to build our new energy system.
“Revolutionary Power is a playbook for the energy transformation complete with a step-by-step analysis of the key energy policy areas that are ripe for intervention,” said Baker, co-founder and co-director of the Initiative for Energy Justice.
