Coal Blooded Illinois Report Release–Chicago Mercury and Air Toxics Rules for Power Plants Hearings

On May 24th in Chicago, Illinois during the Mercury and Air Toxics Rules for Power Plants Hearing, the NAACP and LVEJO co-hosted a Press Conference and Film Screening to release the report NAACP and LVEJO  jointly released with the Indigenous Environmental Network, with lead researcher and author Adrian Wilson.
The “Coal Blooded: Putting Profits Before People in Illinios” Report Release Press Conference featured statements from Jocelyn Travis of the Executive Committee of the NAACP Ohio State Conference, Reverend Homer Cobb, Branch President of NAACP Hammond, IN, Attorney Rose Joshua, Branch President of NAACP Southside Chicago, IL, Leigh Touchton, Branch President of NAACP Valdosta-Lowndes, GA, and our valued partner, Kimberly Wasserman, Executive Director of the Little Village Environmental Justice Organization.

We also held a film screening of “Coal Blooded: Putting Profits Before People–THE FILM” our amateur video production from our “Clearing the Air Road Tour” conducted last year, which provided the qualitative data for the Coal Blooded Report.
