What We Believe

We believe that everyone deserves clean air and water, adequate access to heating and cooling, and a liveable planet to pass on to future generations.

What We Will Do

  • Work with allies in Chicago and nationally via People’s Action climate cohort on campaigns for utility justice that ensure everyone has access to healthy, reliable, and affordable energy
  • Build public and political support for campaigns that reduce our carbon emissions from buildings while also improving living conditions and affordability via the Clean and Affordable Buildings Ordinance and the Green New Deal for Social Housing Campaign
  • Monitor and identify opportunities for poor and working class people and public buildings to benefit from federal resources targeted at reducing carbon emissions, adapting to the effects of climate change, and improving quality of life
