EarthDayOnline_50years EarthDayChallenge_2020 EarthDayOnline_2020

“While we collectively take action as individuals to bend the curve and reduce the spread of coronavirus, we cannot lose sight of the bigger picture — our global climate crisis. The intrinsic connections between human health and planetary health sparked the first Earth Day in 1970, and today, we must rise to meet these dual crises again as Earth Day marks 50 years.

In the face of a challenge that forces us to stay apart, we’re bringing challenges to bring the world together.

 

Join us for the Earth Day Daily Challenge, a 22-day series that will allow people to connect through challenges to take action right now, and every day, for our planet.

Each challenge will be posted daily on Earth Day Network’s social media channels (@earthdaynetwork). Participants can get involved by following the channels and adding their actions with the hashtags #EarthDay2020 and #EARTHRISE.”

Do you want to efficiently take effective action to protect our environment?

NRDC can help you with their new initiative – All In.

How does it work?

You choose how you’d like to be contacted (email, text, phone), the frequency of the alerts you’d like to receive, and the amount of time you’d like to commit – 1 minute, 10 minute, 1 hour, and deep dive.

They provide clear resources for taking action; some are as simple as signing a petition (I signed 3 today in less than 3 minutes) or calling your representatives at the right times and others are as ambitious as hosting an activist meet up. You choose your level of commitment. They help you be more efficient and effective.

NRDC’s All In is simply the best environmental grass roots initiative I’ve ever seen; it’s what I’ve hoped for decades … and it’s coming from the organization at the top of my list to support (and Robert Redford’s). (The Natural Resources Defense Council is historically the most effective independent American environmental organization that helps safe guard old and support new good legislation while shutting down bad legislation.)

Join me!

Please take 1 minute now and sign up today!

Better yet, take 2 minutes and take action right now!

Support Friends Of The Earth.

“Friends of the Earth strives for a more healthy and just world. We understand that the challenges facing our planet call for more than half measures, so we push for the reforms that are needed, not merely the ones that are politically easy. Sometimes, this involves speaking uncomfortable truths to power and demanding more than people think is possible. It’s hard work. But the pressures facing our planet and its people are too important for us to compromise.

We are members of Friends of the Earth International, a global network representing more than two million activists in 74 different countries. In the United States, we advocate in the halls of Congress, in state capitals, and with community groups around the country. With offices in Washington, D.C., and Berkeley, CA, and members in all 50 states, we urge policymakers to defend the environment and work towards a healthy environment for all people.”

“Environmental Defense Fund’s mission is to preserve the natural systems on which all life depends.

Guided by science and economics, we find practical and lasting solutions to the most serious environmental problems.

What distinguishes Environmental Defense Fund is the combination of what we protect and how we protect it.

We work to solve the most critical environmental problems facing the planet. This has drawn us to areas that span the biosphere: climateoceansecosystems and healthSince these topics are intertwined, our solutions take a multidisciplinary approach. We work in concert with other organizations — as well as with business, government and communities — and avoid duplicating work already being done effectively by others.”

“Earthjustice uses the power of law and the strength of partnership to protect people’s health; to preserve magnificent places and wildlife; to advance clean energy; and to combat climate change. 
.
Today’s environmental challenges are greater than ever. But we live in a country of strong environmental laws—and Earthjustice holds those who break these laws accountable for their actions. As the nation’s original and largest nonprofit environmental law organization, we leverage our expertise and commitment to fight for justice and create lasting change.
.
We bring cases with the biggest impact, setting precedents for generations to come. Our decades of success are thanks to strong partnerships with many hundreds of organizations and hundreds of thousands of passionate supporters. Of course, winning a case is only part of the battle. Our litigation is strengthened by policy and communications teams working with decision-makers in D.C. and within the court of public opinion to sustain our legal victories.”
