On April 21st (the day before Earth Day), people of faith, public health workers, clean energy advocates, and students will board a bus bound for Illinois' state capital, Springfield. Six buses will depart from various locations in Chicago, Illinois, including Trinity United Church of Christ, pastored by Rev. Otis Moss, a longtime leader at Blessed Tomorrow.
Organized through Chicago's Interfaith climate organization, Faith in Place, the bus loads of climate leaders will descend on the 'Flower City' to let state leaders know that Illinois residents need swift action on climate change. Participating in Springfield's Earth Day and Climate Action Rally, thousands of people will amplify their collective call, encouraging state legislators to ensure further adoption of climate initiatives.
If you would like to join the bus ride in Chicago, reserve your seat today! Tickets are $40 but discounted seats are available for those that need it. Remember to pack a lunch and water because this is an all day event.
I'll see you on the bus!
