Take Action Tuesday

Treat every day like it’s Earth Day

Yesterday was Earth Day, but the global challenges of the Anthropocene require us to actively work towards solutions to our environmental issues every day. Although many of these issues have global impacts, it’s important to remember that the burdens of environmental issues like climate change, plastic pollution, and water and air pollution aren’t always equitably distributed. Environmental issues are intertwined with issues of social justice, and it’s important that we become and remain aware of this relationship and how it shapes different communities live. What can we all do to treat every day like its Earth day?
