I worked with ELPC this past summer, and I enjoyed my experience very much. ELPC is not only passionate about protecting the Midwest's environment, it's passionate about people as well. ELPC works with every employee, intern, and volunteer patiently and enthusiastically, as well as with local communities and other organizations; and that is what makes ELPC such an effective organization.
I did an internship at the ELPC in 2011. It was great to be involved with an organization that works to promote initiatives such as the disinfection of the Chicago River. Keep up the good work, guys.
ELPC's work across the Midwest and Great Plains is so important to counteracting rhetoric that environmental protection and economic development are mutually exclusive. I worked for ELPC for two years and am proud to have worked with intelligent and capable staff. I continue to support the organization because the leadership and staff members care about the issues they advocate for and about the implementation and results of the programs on which they work. I continue to support them because I think there is no other organization that fills the role that they do so well.
Review from Guidestar
I worked as a legal intern at ELPC for 8 months. I was continually impressed by the expertise and professionalism of their staff and my supervising attorneys. They are a highly-respected organization doing very important work. I learned so much from my time there and continue to turn to this organization as a source of information about environmental achievements and challenges in the Midwest.
I have been involved with ELPC for more than a decade as a Board member and also Chairman of the Board for two years because it is a very effective organization which plays a vital and unique role in protecting the Midwest's natural resources and environmental heritage. ELPC has advanced strong clean energy policies in several states in the Midwest and has been instrumental in cleaning up or shutting down some of the Midwest's dirtiest and oldest coal plants. It has also been a leader on Midwest high-speed rail, clean car standards, and preventing unnecessary and costly roads.
