Ready For 100 Chicago Collective Kickoff

  • Uptake 600 W Chicago Avenue Chicago, IL 60654 United States (map)

Get to know the Ready For 100 Chicago Collective! We're a diverse coalition of Chicago area groups organized by Sierra Club's Ready For 100 as a unified group seeking a commitment and path forward for our great city to be powered by 100-percent clean energy. Environmental, labor, justice groups and more share resources, networks and skills to assist in forging the road to renewable energy — electricity, transportation and all energy. Chicago can lead this charge with other cities to benefit health, equality and sustainability for residents now and generations to come.

Our kickoff celebration comes at the perfect time to incorporate the live stream of Climate Reality Project's "24 Hours of Reality: Protect Our Planet, Protect Ourselves." Hosted by former Vice President Al Gore, the global broadcast will sound the alarm on the clear and present danger that fossil fuels and climate change pose to the health of families and communities across the planet. Our watch party might even be included in the international live stream!

We'll listen in to this broadcast and host some of our own entertainment and speakers, which will include a big toast to Chicago, named one of Bloomberg Philanthropy's American Cities Climate Challenge $70 million-dollar program grantees! Chicago will be part of a two-year acceleration program that provides the city with powerful resources and access to cutting-edge support to help meet or beat near-term carbon reduction goals.

More details — exact Chicago location and our MC (wait for it...) — are forthcoming. But for now, save the date and plan to celebrate with us to show your support for a renewable Chicago. RSVP ASAP with your firm reply so we have enough space for everyone who will help us BUILD MOMENTUM for the Windy City!
