Fastest Path to Zero: The First 100 Days

Fastest Path to Zero: The First 100 Days

FPTZ 2021 new

In its first 100 days alone, the Biden-Harris Administration has already acted swiftly and boldly to help Americans recover from the COVID-19 crisis—accelerating vaccinations, reopening schools, and providing relief to small businesses, states, and cities that faced a difficult 2020. 

President Biden’s next step in our recovery, the American Jobs Plan, would be the most transformational set of policies to pass in decades. But how will Congress approach the plan? And, if enacted, how will it support American jobs, lift up workers, bolster equity, and reduce carbon pollution?  

Please join Third Way and the University of Michigan’s College of Engineering for our premier Fastest Path to Zero event of the year on April 29 from 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM ET, featuring: 

  • A conversation with US Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm on the Biden-Harris Administration’s clean energy priorities. 
  • A presentation from University of Michigan’s Ford School of Public Policy professor Dr. Barry Rabe on presidential transitions.
  • A panel with Reps. Susan Wild (D-PA), Ritchie Torres (D-NY), Roy Houseman, and Heather Zichal to discuss the Biden-Harris climate and clean energy agenda.
