Last week, Governor Pritzker signed an executive order making Illinois the 18th member of the U.S. Climate Alliance! We’re excited to see Illinois take a stand to protect our planet, even as the federal government tries to exit the Paris Agreement, which is a worldwide effort to combat climate change. This is a great sign that we can have a productive year in Illinois. Learn more about the Alliance here!
We’re also excited to announce the launch of our 2019 Action Fund Video Series! Each month, we’ll be sharing a new video from an elected official, board member, or community leader to discuss how to take action with the Action Fund! Our Policy Director, Pastor Scott Onque, kicked off the video series in a Facebook Live video last week. Take a look and stay tuned for more updates about how to get involved!

P.S. Save the date! We’re headed to the State Capitol on Thursday, May 9th this year to advocate for clean energy and just jobs. We’ll have more information soon!
