SUMMIT, Ill. –State Rep. Celina Villanueva, D-Chicago, is inviting residents to a Clean Energy Town Hall meeting to discuss efforts to combat climate change and create a new clean energy economy in Illinois.

“Climate change is a serious threat facing every single resident of this state and every person on our planet,” Villanueva said. “We have a real opportunity as a state to take a role as a national leader in combating climate change by creating a clean energy economy that spurs economic growth and creates clean energy jobs.”

Villanueva’s Clean Energy Town Hall will take place on Saturday July 27 from 10:00 a.m. to noon at the Little Village Branch Library, located at 2311 S. Kedzie Ave. in Chicago. Villanueva will join local environmental organizations to discuss climate change and the Clean Energy Jobs Act (CEJA), House Bill 3624.

CEJA would require Illinois to run completely on renewable energy by 2050, ensuring climate change is addressed while also benefitting underserved communities with new economic opportunities. Additionally, the legislation creates a $25 million dollar clean jobs workforce hub and clean energy empowerment zones to assist communities as they transition away from reliance on fossil fuels.

“The Clean Energy Jobs Act takes bold action on the threat of climate change,” Villanueva said. “I look forward to continuing our work to make Illinois a national clean energy economy leader, spurring economic growth and creating ‘green’ jobs, and putting our state on a path toward 100% renewable energy.”
