Photo Petition Delivery by Caroline Wooten

Students from UChicago Climate Action Network and their campus ally Student Solidarity Network joined over 50 citizens in front of City Hall on Friday morning to demand that Mayor Emmanuel close Chicago’s two dirty coal plants by the end of the year. The group delivered a board of over 800 photo petitions to the Mayor’s office. The petitions were collected all around Chicago, and feature individuals holding signs saying “I have the right to breath clean air.” Many of the petitions were collected at UChicago by SSN and UCAN members.
