We invite you to be a part of Earth Day!
Every year on April 22, Earth Day marks the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970.
The first Earth Day inspired 20 million Americans — at the time, 10% of the total population of the United States — to take to the streets, parks and auditoriums to demonstrate on behalf of the environment
By the end of 1970, the first Earth Day led to the creation of the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of other first of their kind environmental laws that have protected millions of men, women, and children from disease and death and have protected hundreds of species from extinction.
Today, Earth Day is widely recognized as the largest secular observance in the world,. marked by more than a billion people every year as a day of action to change human behavior and create global, national and local policy changes. Earth Day achieves a rare political alignment, enlisting support from Republicans and Democrats, rich and poor, urban dwellers and farmers, business and labor leaders who unite to make a difference for our world.
