I have some exciting news on our final push to pass critical environmental justice bills in Illinois!
Today, we held our Lobby Day virtually for the second time in a row and the support of our work was tremendous.
Over 700 people watched our virtual Lobby Day rally and we held over 80 meetings with Illinois state senators and state representatives. We worked with dozens of environmental, health, justice and community groups across the state to make this lobby day such a success.
Our members are activated by the fight against environmental racism, but there’s still more work to do. We only have 34 days to pass CEJA and other environmental justice bills.
If you were unable to make it to our Lobby Day, please take a minute and sign our environmental justice action alert. This alert will send an email to your legislators and let them know that environmental justice is an issue that matters to you, and we NEED environmental laws that empower communities, not polluters.
We’re proud to be supporting a bill from frontline environmental justice organizations. This bill is a clear way we can use our voice to support community groups on the frontlines of this struggle.
