2018 Environmental Lobby Day

Make sure your voice is heard on environmental issues!

Are you frustrated with the federal administration’s regressive environmental policies? Have you bemoaned the state of things in Illinois? Want to do something about it? We’ve got just the thing:

On Thursday, April 26th, join supporters of the Illinois Environmental Council, Illinois Chapter of the Sierra Club and Faith in Place at the Capitol in Springfield for 2018 Environmental Lobby day. In past years, these events have been vital in passing important environmental policies, including the Future Energy Jobs Act. Considering the constant threats to our environment, it’s now more important than ever to make sure that state legislators hear our concerns loud and clear and to make sure we are heard, we will be rallying in front of the capitol at noon!

Learn More About Climate Change

The U.S. EPA’s website on climate change was once a great resource for basic scientific information on the topic and we look forward to the day that it is again. Until then, the City of Chicago is making sure its citizens have access to research and information.
