Skip to comments.A small band of environmentalists takes fight against Obama Presidential Center to court

When Charlotte Adelman was a student at the University of Chicago, the nearby parks became a refuge for her, a sprawling expanse of green where she could escape the concrete urban landscape.
It was then, many decades ago, that Adelman began her journey to becoming a fighter for environmental justice. Along the way, she has fought to preserve open spaces, ban pesticides in Wilmette and co-authored a book, Prairie Directory of North America.
Now, Adelman, 81, has set her sights on her biggest target yet to block the Obama Presidential Center from being built in Jackson Park.
Adelman, along with her fellow advocates Maria Valencia, Jeremiah Jurevis and the advocacy group Protect Our Parks, have filed suit against the presidential center.

Groundbreaking For Obama Presidential Center Delayed Until 2019
Environmentalists are just RAYCISSS!
Eating their own...
Another great day in America.
So... much... WINNING!
I know for a fact that I will never EVER visit. Using his own logic that makes it not worth the effort to build it.
I think they meant Temple of Obama Worship not presidential center.
Democrats would have rallied the troops and given marching orders had they really wanted to attack.
These people are stepping out of line and have no support from Democratic leaders.
Hopefully the eco-warriors will come to understand Democrats don't care about the environment unless they can gain a political advantage.
No political advantage. No troop support.
Hawaii is an expensive place to build. Nairobi, on the other hand...
Perfect. The first presidential library to be built outside the country. How appropriate for the Muslim Traitor!
Barry just loves to hear that they are “erecting” something to him.
0bama should move to a larger site and redesign the building to look more like a pyramid. A Shrine unto Himself
Pfffft. New land is forming every day. Make it a global warming education center as well. A bathhouse with natural heating? Win-win.
I was thinking more like a bus...on the ground floor (”under the bus”) there could be exhibits to the environmentalists, Rev. Wright, etc.
