With the high stakes of the impending election and Illinois facing a record spike in COVID-19 cases, it's more important than ever to stand up and demand climate justice and equity.
Join 350 Chicago and its coalition partners for a Virtual Lobby Day on November 12th to advocate for the Illinois Clean Energy Jobs Act (CEJA).
CEJA is a blueprint for setting Illinois on a path to 100% clean energy, simultaneously providing new jobs and training to our communities. It has four pillars:
- Reach 100% renewable energy by 2050
- Eliminate carbon power by 2030
- Electrify the transportation sector
- Hold utility companies accountable
CEJA will do all of this while also being fully committed to creating equitable economic recovery in the black and brown communities, as well as coal communities, who need it most. Earlier this year, before shelter-in-place orders began, more than 700 people traveled to Springfield for the Lobby Day for CEJA at the State Capitol. It's time to come together again - this time virtually!
Join us on November 12th to talk to your state legislators via Zoom about the need for climate action, just-transition, job growth grounded in racial & economic justice, consumer protection, and more. You'll not only will have the opportunity to connect with lawmakers but also a chance to meet other activists in your area.
Let's embrace policies that are both good for the people and for the planet by showing our support for CEJA. Participating in this event is one of the most impactful things you can do to help pass CEJA. After you RSVP, you'll receive more details about where/when of your virtual meetings and other ways to lend support leading up to the day.
We look forward to seeing you there.
Team 350 Chicago
