Pam and Lan Richart, co-directors of the Eco-Justice Collaborative, will tour the audience through Illinois coal, sharing environmental and social insights on mining from its extraction to its waste disposal.

There will be an information table, and participants are welcome to bring information about green products and services to share. 

Additional parking is available at the train station.
