Join us at the Patagonia SoHo store for a conversation about Indian Point nuclear power plant, featuring a discussion moderated by filmmaker Jon Bowermaster and a screening of four short films from his “Hudson River at Risk” series.

Riverkeeper President Paul Gallay will discuss the future of Indian Point, and the need to close the aging plant located 34 miles from Times Square. Paul will be joined by Betta Broad from New Yorkers for Clean Power, who will discuss renewable energy sources and how New Yorkers can achieve a clean energy future.

An attorney and educator, Paul has dedicated himself to the environmental movement having worked for the New York State Attorney General, New York’s Department of Environmental Conservation, and spending a decade in the land conservation movement before becoming Riverkeeper’s President in 2010.

Elizabeth (Betta) Broad is the Outreach Director for New Yorkers for Clean Power, a campaign to accelerate the transition to a renewable energy economy in New York State. Prior to launching New Yorkers for Clean Power, she was the Program Manager for the Community Fracking Defense Project, an initiative of Catskill Mountainkeeper and the Natural Resources Defense Council. While in this role, she created the RenewableNY program, launching Southern Tier Solar Works and Solarize Hudson Valley.
