Rosalind Jackson, Managing Director of External Relations, Vote Solar

Rosalind Jackson manages public communications for Vote Solar. Since 2008, she joined the Vote Solar team, building up campaigns around the country, and helping give individual advocates into a powerful voice for solar. While she heads up an amazing national communications and member team, she also finds time to stay active in improving her backyard, by serving on the board of bay.org. Admire that energy and balancing of advocacy work!

Rosalind’s submissions: “In very different ways, these songs both touch on so much of what inspires my work on a daily basis: The intersectionality of the climate crisis and its clean energy solutions as well as the strength and courage of women and marginalized people of all kinds who are demanding positive change.”

Lizzo, Good as Hell

“Any solar advocate knows, this work is HARD. We are trying to transform one of the most powerful and entrenched industries on the planet – so when I need a recharge, I do my hair toss and listen to the queen of self-actualization Lizzo’s “Good as Hell” to shake off whatever is standing in my way:”

I do my hair toss, check my nails
Baby how you feelin’? (Feelin’ good as hell)
Woo, child, tired of the bullshit
Go on, dust your shoulders off, keep it moving
You know you a star, you can touch the sky
I know that it’s hard, but you have to try

 

Sean Hayes, This is Happening

“And when I’m feeling more reflective, I love This is Happening, a soulful protest song written by local Bay Area musician, Sean Hayes, in honor of his wife’s participation in the 2017 Women’s March. It gets solar cred because it was also the anthem to the Redford Center’s film Happening: A Clean Energy Revolution, which captured the extraordinary power of ordinary people – in this case, Nevadans – to drive solar progress against powerful opposition.”

Yes, this is happening.
Every day is another way to make things right.
Oh, this is happening.
Every day is another way to make things right.
She’s out walking now for what’s good.
Put her body on the line.
She’s not hiding; she’s out fighting.
To rise.
