Members of the Energy and Environment Committee of the City Council have introduced a resolution declaring a climate emergency. This proposal fits a key demand of XR Chicago! We are asking our members to sign up for public comments and to be in the audience to show their support.

The committee will be discussing the resolution on Monday February 10th at 12noon
City Hall 121 North LaSalle St. Room 201A.

We know that this is an important step but only the very first one. Please come and help make our presence known at this hearing. We need to encourage the City to not only declare an emergency and then follow that declaration with action.

The resolution will likely be heard first. Come with a printed sign and hold it up quietly during the hearing. We also encourage members to sign up to make a public comment: thank the Aldermen for declaring an emergency and then encourage them to follow up by taking the climate-related action of your choosing!
