Earth Week: Zona Abierta: From Coal to Diesel in Little Village
Date(s) - Wednesday, April 18, 2018
3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Presented by: UIC Latino Cultural Center
Since the Crawford coal plant closed in 2012, LVEJO has listened to community leaders and advocated for a just transition of the site. However, Hilco Redevelopment Partners recently acquired the site, with plans for a diesel intensive logistics facility. Join us for an interactive discussion with LVEJO community organizers, Nancy Meza & Lilian Molina, about the risks this large facility could pose for the community.
