CWA Cafe: Going to Referendum: Mobilization for Local Conservation and Forest Preserve Districts

Join us for the Chicago Wilderness Alliance Cafe on Thursday, March 21, via Zoom. Hear from policy experts about current events in the region. The event page has an open registry until March 21.

During the November 2022 election, the Forest Preserves of Cook County experienced a major victory when voters agreed to pass a referendum allocating more funding to the Forest Preserves. This would not have been possible without the Vote Yes for Clean Air, Clean Water, and Wildlife coalition. A group of over 160+ environmental, conservation, and community-based organizations came together to lead the campaign across the finish line. This year, several other Chicago-area conservation and forest preserve districts may be attempting similar ballot measures. Experts from the Vote Yes for Clean Air, Clean Water, and Wildlife campaign are hosting this session to share best practices and lessons learned.
