Dear Earth Day Supporters,
I don’t know about you but I am swinging between hope and concern as I see what’s happening around us. Hope that vaccines are being rolled out more quickly but concern that COVID cases are rising in Massachusetts and around the country. Hope because Massachusetts has an updated climate bill that puts us on a path to net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 and that the Biden Administration’s infrastructure bill makes climate change a central part of the plan. However, I remain concerned that these changes aren’t happening fast enough.
This is where Earth Day Boston 2021 comes in. We must keep pushing for anti-racist, enforceable, science-based approaches to tackling the climate crisis. You can help us by spreading the word about our event on April 22nd and donating to support it. Please post on your social media accounts and email your friends. Feel free to use our publicity kit here which includes a poster and “Instagram ready” post.
Finally, we are excited to announce that Boston City Council President, Matt O’Malley will be speaking in addition to all the other wonderful speakers and performers. Join us this Saturday for our penultimate planning meeting from 10 am – 11 am. Email us for the Zoom link. I hope to see you soon!
