Question Title

* 1. Tell Us A Little About Yourself!

Question Title

* 2. Clean Energy Jobs Act: 
The Clean Energy Jobs Act (CEJA) sets a path for Illinois to be 100% powered by renewable energy, while increasing energy efficiency and ensuring access to good jobs in a growing market. It is a viable solution for COVID19 recovery. It will bring lasting job opportunities to communities across the state that have been negatively affected by this pandemic, while protecting our health and our planet for future generations. Are you a sponsor or will you become a sponsor of CEJA? Why or Why Not?

Question Title

* 3. Climate Change- Clean Energy by 2050:
Realizing the effects of Climate Change on Illinois Communities and the disparities it creates is important to realistically address this issue. Curbing climate change while creating pathways to clean energy jobs and wealth creation is an opportunity for communities who suffer most from environmental degradation. Will you work with the Faith in Place Action Fund to champion climate justice policies for 100% clean energy by 2050 in order to create wind and solar and energy efficiency jobs for all?

Question Title

* 4. Climate Change- Fossil Fuel Free by 2030:
During COVID19, we have seen the fossil fuel industry receive major handouts while the communities who have carried the burden of their pollutants for decades struggled financially while being at higher risk for the virus. We have seen the EPA systematically roll back regulations which has highlighted the importance of state leadership and the need to pass stronger legislation. Legislation that will combat climate change must include input from coal communities. Will you work with the Faith in Place Action Fund to champion climate justice policies for carbon-free power by 2030?

Question Title

* 5. Job Creation:
COVID19 clearly shows access to employment, economic investment, economic mobility, and training opportunities are unequal across Illinois, with minority, low-income, environmental justice, and rural communities having less access to these opportunities. Will you work with the Faith in Place Action Fund to support an environmental justice agenda that creates and prioritizes pathways for environmental justice jobs in these communities?

Question Title

* 6. A Just Economy:
Clean energy technologies and new green economy jobs present employment opportunities for all communities, and the Future Energy Jobs Act created the Illinois Solar for All program to train residents across Illinois, including returning citizens and foster care alumni, for clean energy jobs. Realizing these opportunities have been decreased due to COVID19, and CEJA (Clean Energy Jobs Act) looks to expand “Solar for All” program by 4 to 5 times. Will you work with the Faith in Place Action Fund to support existing and future environmental policies that ensure returning citizens, foster care alumni, and environmental justice communities share in career path opportunities in the clean energy economy?

Question Title

* 7. Food Justice & Scarcity:
COVID19 has exposed how food scarcity is an issue in Illinois. Before COVID19 more than 500,000 people in Illinois lived in food scarce neighborhoods where local, healthy food, was not readily available. It has tremendously increased where thousands of families are faced with food insecurity on a daily basis. Are you willing to work with the Faith in Place Action Fund to support and champion a more extensive effort to promote food justice throughout the State?

Question Title

* 8. Ethylene Oxide:
COVID19 has proven to have more severe health outcomes for individuals who experience preexisting conditions. Ethylene Oxide (EtO) has been a chemical used sterilization facilities throughout Illinois, and according to the US EPA, EtO is a class one carcinogen linked to the development of breast cancer and other cancer varieties. EtO is putting the lives of many Illinoisans at risk. Are you willing to work with the Faith in Place Action Fund to support and champion phasing out EtO from our state and require transition to safer alternatives?

Question Title

* 9. What type(s) of climate legislation are you currently working on passing?

Question Title

* 10. In what ways have you already championed climate legislation in your district?

Question Title

* 11. How do you see climate justice and racial justice being interconnected?
