From the most recent Environmental Defenders of McHenry County email:
The Natural Resources Defense Council and Environmental Defense Fund’s joint Green Team once again invites you, as an environmental defender, to the next local meeting on Tuesday, October 15 in Algonquin at Riverbottom Ice Cream Co (Main Street & Washington) from 6PM to 8PM.
We will: call our representative’s district office, write them a postcard, sign a petition, post on social media, and sign up for future advocacy opportunities.
Two national environmental organizations– EDF Action and the NRDC Action Fund—are joining forces to launch Green Team, an on-the-ground, focused advocacy effort with organizers in seven key congressional districts across the country, including right here in Illinois’s 6th and 14th Districts.
Our goal is to encourage Congressman Sean Casten and Congresswoman Underwood, to take strong stances and be a leader on protecting the environment, advancing clean energy and fighting climate change, and co-sponsoring the 100% Clean Economy Act to mandate our country transition to a 100% clean energy economy by 2050.
