“On April 22, 1970, 20 million Americans — at the time, 10% of the total population of the United States — took to the streets, parks and auditoriums to demonstrate for a healthy, sustainable environment in massive coast-to-coast rallies.” ~earthday.org
The theme for Earth Day 2020 is Climate Action. Even in these times of social distancing and quarantines we can still take a step back and reflect on the impact of our actions and take action. Climate action can take many forms from simple steps to learn about and reduce waste in your own home to joining a political action campaign, virtually, in your town or the state.
