Â Community Reinvestment in Illinois’Â Heartland
TheÂ programÂ will include a short presentation that illustrates how an economy based primarily on coal also has significant social costs and long-term liabilities. Following the presentation, together we will explore alternatives that can lay the groundwork for vibrant and diversified economies in places historically tied to the â€œboom and bustâ€ cycle of coal.
- Bring your ideas for diversifying the economy in your town and county.
- Learn what other coal-mining communities are doing to build on their history and resources to create jobs and prosperity.
- Take home a fact sheet that you can share with your friends, family and colleagues.
