Farmers Market table partners raised 1,000 signed petitions in support of the Illinois Clean Energy Jobs Act (CEJA) in 2019.

Last April through October, volunteers from Oak Park Area Climate Action and Illinois Sierra Club shared a table at Oak Park Farmers Market dedicated to soliciting  citizen signatures in support of the Illinois Clean Energy Jobs Act (CEJA). Their combined tabling effort yielded 1,000 signed supporters for a state bill that promises clean, affordable energy, $39 billion in new private investment for clean energy projects, and a surge of renewable energy jobs in Illinois. Anticipating passage next spring, the CEJA bill currently has more than 30 supporters in the Illinois Senate, and nearly 60 in the House.
