This April 22 is the world's 50th Earth Day! Earth Day is a reminder and an opportunity to bring the deep wisdom of our traditions to bear on the need to repair our relationships with Earth and each other today.
The very first Earth Day was organized in the wake of growing awareness about the toxicity of pesticides, a massive oil spill off the coast of Santa Barbara, CA, and the fire that raged five stories high on Cleveland's famously polluted Cuyahoga River. Today, our destabilized climate compounds the local struggles for clean air, land, and water that communities face.
When you tell us about how your community is taking action, it helps us:
see the impact of our work, demonstrate it to funders,
and share your great ideas with our community of supporters.
We will mail a complimentary copy of the Earth Friendly Household
by Adarsa Antares to the first 10 people we hear from.
