  • Edgewater library 6000 N. Broadway Ave Chicago, IL 60660 United States (map)

At the April 6th meeting, attendees can expect two 20-minute presentations, one on the Clean Jobs Coalition's work on the Clean Energy Jobs Act and another on the Sunrise Movement's work on the Green New Deal. The presentation will consist of the four pillars of the CEJA: jobs and economic opportunity, 100 percent renewable energy by 2050, electrification of the transportation sector, and decarbonization of the power sector by 2030. Additionally, the presentation will cover the politics of CEJA and actions we can take to promote the bill.

Sunrise will talk about their work to promote the Green New Deal, the policy details of the GND, political strategy going forward, and actions we can take to support the legislation.

Please join us Saturday April 6th, 10am - 11am at the Edgewater Library 6000 N Broadway.

350 Chicago will also hold a new member info session prior to the 10am meeting. We will meet at 9:15am at Metropolis Coffee, 1039 W Granville Ave, Chicago, IL 60660. Afterwards, we will walk as a group to the Edgewater Library.
