ICA is working with the Illinois Clean Jobs Coalition and the Illinois Environmental Council on a small series of community conversations as part of the Listen. Lead. Share. (LLS) campaign. LLS events are an opportunity to engage Chicago residents in clean energy education, provide context to the upcoming Clean Energy Jobs Act (CEJA), and gather input from residents on how this act/clean energy can provide opportunities for them.
With passage of the Future Energy Jobs Act, Illinois has taken great strides toward a clean, affordable energy future, and we want everyone to be part of the discussion on how we build off that momentum. It’s key that people from every corner of Illinois come together to talk about the... advantages of affordable, clean energy and how we achieve that for everyone.” –CUB Environmental Outreach Coordinator
Discussions revolve around the four pillars of the CEJA bill:
In addition to CEJA, ICA's LLS events will feature community partners who offer experiential insight and further opportunities to engage in local environmental justice. While dates still need to be confirmed with these community partners, we expect to hold our LLS Converations in the areas of Uptown in late July, South Shore in August, and Bronzeville in October.
