Dear Earth Day 2020 Boston Supporters,
I hope you had a great Presidents’ Day. The above image of President Teddy Roosevelt and John Muir, the “Father of the National Parks,” reminded me that protection of the environment is not, and does not have to be, a partisan issue. Republican President Teddy Roosevelt was an avid outdoors person and conservationist, thanks in part to his trip to Yosemite with John Muir in 1903. Richard Nixon proposed and signed into law the establishment of the EPA after the first Earth Day in 1970.
50 years later and two months before the Earth Day 2020 Boston, we are working to make sure that stopping climate change is at the top of the agenda of every politician – Democrat, Republican and Independent. Join us this Wednesday, February 19th at 5:30 pm in the Church of the Covenant at 67 Newbury Street to help make this goal a reality. This must be the year for strong climate action and with your help, we can make it happen.
You can also help us reach our fundraising goal by clicking here. We need your support as we go into the final phase of organizing the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. These donations help us make sure this event pushes our leaders to take action.
If you can’t come on Wednesday, please support our co-sponsors. Many groups have actions in the coming weeks. Please check out their websites for more information.
I look forward to seeing you on Wednesday.
P.S. If you can’t make it in person on Wednesday, but would like to call in, please let me know firstname.lastname@example.org.
