On April 26, people from across Illinois will converge on Springfield to rally for our shared home and talk to our legislators about policies that will protect our air, water, land, and neighbors. Environmental Lobby Day happens every April in Springfield and is vital to building the political power we need to address environmental injustices today, and protect our communities for generations to come. We hope you can join!
WHAT: Environmental Lobby Day
WHERE: Illinois State Capitol Building – 401 S Second St. Springfield, IL
WHEN: Thursday, April 26, Rally @ 11 am, lobbying before + after
You can come down the night before for a reception and training, drive/carpool/take the train there the day-of, or get on bus the day of.

- We have a number of important issues we’ll be advocating for, such as:
Protecting utility customers from being forced to bail-out polluting coal power plant owner Dynegy
- Ensuring access to clean drinking water for all by making sure Illinois replaces our aging lead water lines. Protecting your right to have a say in polluting projects happening in your community.
Environmental Lobby Day is powerful because of the residents across Illinois who show up to rally + make their voices heard with their state legislators. Please register today!
