April Meeting: It's All About the Environment

  • Northbrook United Methodist Church 1190 Western Avenue Northbrook, IL, 60062 United States (map)

April is all about Earth Day and environmental awareness, and since Washington is not so interested in this, we must be! Join us on April 30 to find out more about what is happening with environmental policy and what you can do to influence it.

Our meeting will feature several speakers dedicated to protecting the environment. We will have:
- IL State Rep. Robyn Gabel, 18th District (http://robyngabel.com/)
Rep. Gabel sits on several environmental committees in the state legislature.
- Jennifer Walling, Executive Director, Illinois Environmental Council (http://ilenviro.org/)
Jennifer leads the IEC, an organization that is dedicated to promote sound environmental laws and policies. 
- Jack Darin, IL Chapter Director, Sierra Club (https://illinois.sierraclub.org/)
The Sierra Club IL Chapter focuses on the state and acts as the home for several National staff for the Midwest Region.
