Thank you to everyone who has helped us get the word out and plan Earth Day Boston 2021. I am looking forward to coming together to call for climate justice. Please check out our video above and share widely. I think it captures the energy we are trying to create and the action that we need to take. I am also exited to announce that we been able to add to our program Neo Gcabo, a Boston-based, South African R&B and Jazz performer as well as Jennie Stephens, a Northeastern Professor and expert on the intersectionality of the climate crisis.
As much as I am excited to share this event with you, I’m also keenly aware that our society is hurting from the police shooting of Daunte Wright and the continuing effects of COVID. I hope that our event will help us all heal from the pain, but in particular, put a spotlight on what we need to do to transform our society towards a more just and fair system. Those who face the twin stings of hatred and institutional indifference must be heard. Check out this link for ideas about how you can take steps for racial justice.
Finally, check out the many climate events in the next 7 days and join us this Saturday at 10 am, our last meeting before Earth Day. Help us spread the word about Earth Day using our publicity materials. Email here for more information.
