Eco-Justice Collaborative (EJC) brings people together to work for a healthy planet. Our leadership in education, advocacy and collaboration has been instrumental in reducing power plant pollution; fighting subsidies for dirty coal; and creating public forums that explore pathways to a just and sustainable future. Our work includes:
- Creating the Chicago Clean Power Coalition, which re-invigorated the campaign to close Chicago’s two old coal plants (which were closed in September 2012).
- Organizing the annual Great Lakes Chicago BIoneers annual that highlights innovation and possibilities for bringing about a just and sustainable future, using nature as our guide.
- Serving on the leadership team for Heartland Coalfield Alliance, which is working state-wide to make a just transition from a coal economy to one based on clean, reliable, safe energy.
