past events : Illinois Environmental Council Springfield Day
“The deep sense of calm that nature provides... protects our heart and mind. The lessons nature teaches us lead to a new birth beyond suffering caused by our acquisitive self-preoccupation.” ~Buddhadasa Bhikkhu

It's time for the annual Illinois Environmental Council Springfield Day once again. This year Faith in Place is sponsoring two buses, one departing from 6th Grace Presbyterian Church at 600 E. 35th Street in Chicago and the other departing from River Forest United Methodist Church at 7970 Lake Street, River Forest. Participants can sign up for one or the other bus, carpool or drive to either site, leave their car on the church parking lot for the day, and be returned to it by evening. Cost per person is $50 including round-trip transportation, lunch and dinner.
We'll be emphasizing our fracking bill and a bill increasing standing for citizens to bring direct suits in court against polluters when the regulatory agencies are not acting to prevent an environmental harm. Come to one of our way fun policy workshops in February or March to prepare for Springfield Day and then reserve yourself a spot on the bus.
