Clean Energy Jobs Act Lobby Day March 4th
As part of our follow up to our People’s Climate Movement event in Elwood, Illinois in 2018, WWJ became a member of the Illinois Clean Jobs Coalition and has been a supporter of the Clean Energy Jobs Act (CEJA). Within the last couple of weeks Illinois Governor JB Pritzker signaled support for a version of CEJA. While this is a welcome and encouraging development, it’s critical that we follow up with our elected officials in order to pass the strongest bill possible. For all our friends in Will County we want to invite you to join us for a lobby day on March 4th. We will be meeting up at 7am at a location tba.

Early Warning: Earth Day to May Day
Last year as part of our work with the Athena Coalition, WWJ fought for both labor and environmental justice from Amazon. In this spirit, WWJ is helping to spearhead local Earth Day to May Day organizing efforts that will link labor, community, student and climate justice efforts. Last week we had our first earth to may day coalition meeting in Chicago with 40+ people attending. There is a lot of enthusiasm to link these efforts and to support the unprecedented youth climate strikes. Our next meeting will be Wednesday, February 19th, 6pm at a location tba. For our friends in Will County, we have set a county-wide Earth Day event for Saturday, April 25th, noon at St. Francis University. For more info on either of these efforts email email@example.com
