Tri-City NAACP Continues Discussions on Growth in Lake County


In 2022, Tri-City NAACP led three online forums attended by concerned citizens, advocacy groups, and government officials.

“We saw in the committee that growth was having a serious impact on Lake County,” said Beverly G. Ward in describing the impetus for the Environmental and Climate Justice Committee of the Tri-City NAACP in coordinating a three-part series called “Lake County’s Population Explosion.”

Our own Jane Hepting, Chair of the ECJ Committee was instrumental in the creation and success of these forums. Their/our work is not done. Learn more about what they are doing going forward:
