In commemoration of Earth Day 2020 and the unique times we are living in today, we are honored to share / re-post this outreach from our friends at Eco-Justice Ministries:
For this 50th anniversary of Earth Day, a lot of special and important events are planned, especially through the three days of Wednesday - Friday. Unfortunately, most of them now are "virtual" events offered on-line ... but that means that we all have the opportunity to participate in more activities, with a wider range of topics.
There are many programs and events scheduled for this week. You can find a comprehensive list on the Eco-Justice Ministries website, all with details about how to register or join the live-stream.
A powerful highlight of this week is the three-day long "Earth Day Live" mobilization. The full schedule for this youth-planned series is now on-line. From 9:00 AM through 9:00 PM (Eastern time) on all three days, there will be constant and exciting presentations, concerts, and on-line activism.
I strongly urge you to join in with as much of this week's programming as you can -- through the Earth Day Live portal.
