LMC to host community environmental activist

Published 5:44pm Thursday, January 9, 2014

Are there environmental issues in your neighborhood/community that you would like to mobilize other like-minded souls to take action?

How does one connect and make a difference?

What steps are needed for organizing and action success?

Mark your calendars to hear Chris Williams speak about these issues and more from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Jan. 16 at Lake Michigan College’s South Haven Campus.

Williams will discuss steps he has taken to organize community members on a wealth of issues and actions during his 25 years of involvement with Citizens Action Coalition of Indiana, Vermont Citizens Action Network, and Vermont Yankee Decommissioning Alliance.

As a leader of the ongoing grassroots campaign to shutdown Entergy’s Vermont Yankee atomic reactor (a Fukushima Daiichi twin design), Williams will talk about how community organizing can lead to positive change.

A sustainable energy policy activist, Williams has a long professional history working with public interest organizations. For 25 years he was the executive director for Citizens Action Coalition of Indiana, a not-for-profit consumer and environmental advocacy organization. CAC conducts extensive grassroots public education campaigns concerning public utility regulation, energy policy, environmental policy, and the preservation of family farms.
