Robinson to Host Clean Energy Town Hall and Resource Fair for Residents

State Rep. Lamont J. Robinson, D-Chicago, is inviting local residents to attend a Clean Energy Town Hall and Resource Fair on Wednesday, July 31 beginning at 5:30 p.m. at the Gary Comer Youth Center Exhibition Hall, located at 7200 S. Ingleside Ave. in Chicago.

“Climate change is a serious and urgent issue that we must address immediately,” Robinson said. “Combatting the effects of fossil fuels should be one of our top priorities, and having a conversation about sustainable alternatives is a necessary step in that process.”

Robinson is partnering with several environmental organizations including the Illinois Environmental Council and Sierra Club to host a Clean Energy Town Hall and Resource Fair to discuss ways to reduce carbon footprints and move toward a more conscious and environmentally friendly future. Robinson has been a champion for better environmental policy since joining the General Assembly and co-sponsored several measures to promote clean and renewable energy, including House Bill 3624, also known as the Clean Energy Jobs Act.

“While President Trump and his extreme allies continue to ignore the detrimental effects of climate change, we must continue working toward a clean and sustainable future here in Illinois,” Robinson said. “Everyone can play a part in reducing our state’s carbon footprint, and I encourage all local residents to take part in this discussion and learn how to have a better impact on our environment.”
