Reinvesting in the Heartland
Join EJC and Shawnee Hills and Hollers in Williamson County on Wednesday, January 14, for the second of a series of listening sessions, designed to foster discussion on possibilities for creating economic, environmental, and socioeconomic sustainability in the heartland of Illinois.
The evening will include a short presentation that illustrates how an economy based primarily on coal also has significant social costs and long-term liabilities. Following the presentation, we will explore together alternatives that can lay the groundwork for vibrant and diversified economies in places historically tied to the “boom and bust” cycle of coal:
- Take home a fact sheet that you can share with your friends, family and colleagues.
- Bring your ideas for diversifying the economy in your town and county.
- Learn what other coal-mining communities are doing to build on their history and resources to create jobs and prosperity.
