We're partnering with Graying Green for Earth Day 2020 

and reaching out to youth, parents, and our community!

Graying Green is a simple but effective card game that teaches children about their impact on the environment and the climate. It guides kids through figuring out what they're already doing and what more they could be doing about climate change on an individual basis.

Take Climate Leadership Action

Stay Current:

Did you know that the entire lifecycle of plastics is filled with deeply rooted problems and worse—an entrenched petrochemical industry that refuses to budge?

 

To raise awareness of the fundamental problems and unaddressed consequences (health, economic, environmental, and climate threats) posed by the entire lifecycle of plastics, The Climate Reality Project is partnering with several regional organizations to host a monthly webinar series called:

“Tackling the A-Z Impacts of Plastic: From Fracked Gas to Plastic Pollution in the Ohio River Valley and Beyond.”

 

Sign up here for the zoom webinar series. Learn more and join a conversation forum with webinar speakers and participants from across our state and beyond.

 

 

Upcoming Webinars scheduled on third Tuesday and Thursday each month through August 2020

Time: 7 pm – 8:30 pm

Watch the full recording of prior webinars here. 

Speak up:

Write a letter to the editor, op-ed, or blog post about your story and why you take action to protect the planet. 

Speak out:

Contact your local leaders and let them know we cannot put off urgent climate action any longer.

Juneteenth (June 19th) is a day that honors Black freedom and Black resistance, and centers Black people’s unique contribution to the struggle for justice in the U.S.

 

This Juneteenth is a rare moment for our communities to proclaim in one voice that Black Lives Matter, and that we won’t tolerate anything less than justice for all our people.

200+ ORGANIZATIONS  STRONG

While hundreds of millions of dollars have been sent to federal, state and local law enforcement during the pandemic, 20 million people still have not received their stimulus checks, 30 million people remain uninsured, 40 million people are unemployed, 50 million people will face hunger in the weeks ahead and 60 million people do not have living wages.

 

We need transformative change now.
