Earth Day Rally & Advocacy Day a Success!
More than 500 people attended the Earth Day Rally for Climate Justice & Clean Jobs organized by Faith in Place and our partners in the Clean Jobs IL Coalition! Because of your support, 1 out of 3 people there represented communities of faith, making sure that the moral obligation to take action on climate was heard loud and clear. We're so proud that so many Faith in Placers from all across the state showed up to make the rally so impactful. After the rally, people spent the afternoon talking to their legislators and delivering more than 800 letters and petitions, resulting in 5 new co-sponsors being added to the Clean Jobs bill.For pictures, videos, and lots of great press coverage of the day check out our Facebook page.
Take Faithful Action For New Clean Energy Legislation
Illinois has an unprecedented opportunity to take care of the Earth for future generations! SB 1485 / HB 2607 would dramatically transform Illinois’ energy landscape: increasing renewable energy to 35% by 2030, increasing energy efficiency so that we can get 20% reductions in energy use by 2025, and creating more than 32,000 jobs annually in clean energy industries. Learn more and send a message to your Representative and Senator today to ask them to be a clean energy champion and support this new bill!
