Next VOF Meeting April 13, Batavia Public Library
Program: Clean Power, Clean Jobs

Caroline Wooten, a Conservation Organizer with the Illinois Chapter of the Sierra Club, will present on the Environmental Protection Agency's Clean Power Plan and the Illinois Clean Jobs Campaign. The Clean Power Plan will result in the first ever federal limits on carbon pollution from existing power plants. The Illinois Clean Jobs Coalition--a coalition of environmental, public health, consumer advocacy, and clean energy groups--is working to make sure Illinois is a leader in implementing this plan. The coalition has introduced legislation that will create unprecedented changes in Illinois' energy portfolio by increasing clean energy and energy efficiency, and cutting dangerous carbon pollution.

Come learn more about this exciting opportunity for Illinois, and how you can get involved. The public is invited and refreshments are served.
