Faith In Place Lobby Day
Plan on participating in the Faith In Place Lobby Day in Springfield on Thu, Mar 29, 2012, 6:00 a.m. Faith in Place will be emphasizing a fracking bill and a bill increasing standing for citizens to bring direct suits in court against polluters when the regulatory agencies are not acting to prevent an environmental harm. This is our way to put our Seventh Principle into direct action by attending Lobby Day. The more people who show up the more these bills and our faith in place will be taken seriously. This year Faith in Place has arranged for a bus to depart from River Forest United Methodist Church at 7970 Lake Street, River Forest, making it much easier for members of Unity Temple to be part of Lobby Day. Participants can leave their car on the church parking lot for the day, and be returned to it by evening. Cost per person is $50 including round-trip transportation, lunch and dinner. Scholarships are available and can be obtained by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. Inquiries will be held in confidence.
