As part of the annual SustainIU, we will be detailing the state legislative process regarding the environment and sustainability. Special guests from the Citizens Action Coalition (CAC) will be there to discuss their work and what we can do. We will explain why it necessary to affect political change to improve sustainable practices and show you how you can get involved.
CAC has advocated for three decades on behalf of Hoosiers on issues regarding energy policy, utility reform, health care, pollution prevention, and family farms. In order to achieve the objective to protect consumers in Indiana, CAC’s activities include performing research, carrying out public education campaigns, organizing citizens, creating public awareness, lobbying legislators, intervening in utility cases before the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission, and litigating when necessary.
