May 9: Illinois Climate Lobby Day:

Join Linda and other Illinois environmental activists for Climate Action Lobby Day on Thursday, May 9, at the Illinois State Capitol. This is our chance to let our legislators know that we are concerned about the coal-powered electricity that the Tri-Cities get from Prairie State Energy Campus! A pre-lobby day Zoom call will be held for all municipal- and cooperative-utility participants so that we can focus efforts on the issues concerning municipal and cooperative electric utilities. If you want to go to Springfield to join this lobby day, register here:  https://ilenviro.org/2024-climate-action-lobby-day IMPORTANT: Please register as soon as possible. If enough participants from the Tri-Cities register, we may be able to get a bus to leave from here.

We look forward to seeing you at any and all of these events.   Linda will keep you posted on other interesting events in our communities.

Every person counts in local, grassroots elections!
