They will share their past victoriesfrom the closing of the Fisk and Crawford coal plants to their new urban garden—and provide a brief update on the amazing climate march and summit in New York City. Learn about their “equitable redevelopment” efforts as part of their EJ 2020 Plan to improve living conditions in Chicago’s Little Village and Pilsen Neighborhoods.
