State Lung Health Education Day
On March 25 we led a group of 50 constituents from the districts of more than 15 Senators and 21 State Representatives on a trip to the state capitol in Springfield. Advocates met with a few dozen lawmakers to share their stories of living with lung disease and show their support for clean energy, tobacco control and bills that protect lung health. Contact us to get involved in upcoming advocacy efforts. Your involvement makes all the difference!
We are proud to be a partner in the new Clean Energy Initiative initiated by the Bloomberg Philanthropies and the Heising-Simons Family. This work will accelerate our work aimed at improving air quality, fighting the damaging impacts of climate change and building a strong energy economy.
We launched The Coal Truth campaign to raise awareness of how coal power plants impose steep costs on the public’s health and quality of life in Illinois. We want to alert lawmakers in Springfield and the public in Illinois about how coal punishes the most vulnerable Illinoisans – the very young, the very old, the poor and the sick.
