Senator Bennett, Be a Champ for Climate!

August 16 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Rally for an Equitable Clean Energy and Climate Bill!
Join us to tell Senator Bennett to be a Champ, and Support the Governor’s equitable clean energy and climate bill.

Illinois’ Prairie State coal plant has recently been thrust into the middle of state and national conversations about decarbonizing our power sector. The plant, a 1,766 megawatt behemoth located just 36 miles southeast of St Louis, is the largest coal-fired power plant and the largest carbon emitter in Illinois.

Any state legislation that excludes the Prairie State coal plant is not a climate bill & State Senator Bennett must be a champion for clean energy jobs and climate equity. He must help lead the way in the Senate and pass the Governors equitable clean energy and climate bill.

Rally with us on August 16th for a #FossilFreeIL!
