Hello Friends & Fellow Climate Activists,
350 Chicago will be hosting a moderated forum on the Clean Energy Jobs Act on Thursday, April 8th! We invite you to register for the event at the following link: CEJA Forum Registration.
What Is CEJA?
The Clean Energy Jobs Act (CEJA) is crafted to simultaneously combat the climate crisis and expand the renewable energy sector in Illinois. CEJA will establish goals for 100% clean energy, provide equitable and inclusive economic opportunities to Illinoisans statewide, and deliver racial and environmental justice to communities affected by carbon-based pollution while retraining displaced workers in the fossil-fuel industry.
The forum will feature three distinguished panelists: 59th District Representative Daniel Didech, co-lead sponsor of CEJA and vice chair of the Energy and Environment Committee; Jen Walling, executive director of the Illinois Environmental Council, which leads the Illinois Clean Jobs Coalition; and Kari Lydersen, reporter for Midwest Energy News and lecturer at Northwestern University’s Medill Graduate School of Journalism. The panelists will discuss the challenges of developing and passing the legislation through the Illinois State House and Senate.
A question and answer session will follow the discussion, along with actions for individuals and organizations to take to further educate, organize, and advocate for the passing of the Clean Energy Jobs Act.
Here are the details:
