Environmental Chicago: Industry Night

  • Dovetail Brewery 1800 West Belle Plaine Avenue Chicago, IL, 60613 United States (map)

Hello friends!!

Thank you to everyone that came out last month and learned about the Chicago River with our speakers Maggie Jones of the Friends of the Chicago River and Chelsey Grassfield and Josh Ellis of the Metropolitan Planning Council. Everyone had so many great questions for our guests! If you missed it - don't worry! Catch the convo on our shiny new YouTube channel:

In June we will tackle Climate Action....emphasis on ACTION. Two speakers lined up so far:

- Vanessa Perkins a fellow with Environmental Entrepreneurs (E2) designing a community electric vehicle (EV) charging program for urban residential neighborhoods of Chicago. 

- Rebecca Ratliff & Grace Dobbyn with Citizens' Climate Lobby. A non-profit, non-partisan grassroots advocacy organization focused on national policies to address climate change. 

Eventbrite is live. Additional superstars to be announced soon.

In the words of Ms Ratliff: "If you ever feel hopeless or worry there's no solution that fits the scale of the problem, this is one talk you won't want to miss."

See your lovely faces in June.
