Chicago Is Running Out of time.
Join the Race for Clean Air and Clean Energy!

Last year on October 24th, hundreds of people joined together outside of Chicago’s Fisk Coal Plant to demand clean air and a fair climate treaty. This year, on October 10th, people from across Chicago will unite for the Chicago Clean Power Day of Action!

Our message this year is clear: Chicago is running out of time. Join the race for clean air and clean energy.

On 10.10.10 we will meet at 9:30am at the “Eyeball” (State Street, between Jackson and VanBuren) to hold banners and educate our neighbors about the devastating effects of Chicago’s coal plants, and how we can clean up our city through the Clean Power Ordinance.

Then, at 12:30 we will rally at the Alivio Medical Center (966 West 21st Street) for the passage of the Chicago Clean Power Ordinance. Jeff Biggers from the Huffington Post and Chicago City Aldermen will make the case for cleaning up Chicago’s dirty coal plants. We are finalizing the speakers list, so please stay tuned!

The Fisk and Crawford coal-fired power plants in Chicago represent the largest sources of dangerous and poisonous air emissions in the region – making them the cause of dozens of premature deaths every year. They also emit thousands of tons of global warming pollution every year! The Clean Power Ordinance introduced in the City Council would require Fisk and Crawford to clean up their act. This year, please join dozens of groups, hundreds of people and city officials to demand clean air and a safe climate!

Join the rally! Be the voice of change! Partner with us on 10.10.10.
