SPRINGFIELD – Following the Illinois Legislative Black Caucus’s release of critical reform legislation, the Illinois Clean Jobs Coalition released this statement:
“We are proud to stand with the Illinois Legislative Black Caucus as they work to address systemic racism and historic inequities in our state through meaningful reforms to criminal justice, education, health care, and more. We remain committed to tearing down the barriers to job training, driving economic investment, and creating opportunities to build generational wealth for Black, Indigenous and People of Color who have been left out for too long. The pandemic has only magnified and exacerbated these injustices, and we look forward to working together in the new year toward building a more equitable Illinois as soon as possible.”

The Clean Jobs Coalition is made up of more than 200 consumer, business, environmental, environmental justice, health care, faith-based and student organizations. Visit to learn more.
