EARTH DAY: THEN AND NOW
Virtual Event: Wed, April 8, 2020 12:00 – 1:00 PM
The first Earth Day on April 22, 1970, brought 20 million people together across the country standing up for the environment in a grassroots day of action. Later that year, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was established and the Clean Air Act was passed. Over the following 50 years, the United States made great strides in restoring and protecting natural resources from water to air to endangered species.
Today, the achievements of the past 50 years are under assault, and the lack of action to address climate change by government and industry remains an existential threat. Just as we did 50 years ago, it is time for us to stand together— amid this unprecedented and turbulent time—and seek science-based policy to protect the planet – coupled with Action. Please join us for a presentation and discussion to learn about the work the Appalachian Mountain Club is doing to protect the laws that protect our environment, and how you can help in the months ahead.
