COLUMBIA-- The League of Conservation Voters will host a Clean Energy Missouri campaign kickoff at 7 p.m. Thursday in the Friends Room at Columbia Public Library. The meeting is part of a national campaign to pass a clean energy plan through Congress, according to a news release from the league.
The League of Conservation Voters is part of the Clean Energy Works coalition, a group of organizations and individuals working toward cleaner energy, league spokeswoman Michaela Howard said.
The meeting will feature Jan Weaver, a local clean energy expert and director of the Environmental Studies Program at MU.
