On Tuesday, Earth Day, I attended a meeting with John Podesta, Counselor to President Obama, and Paulette Aniskoff from the White House Office of Public Engagement, along with members of the environmental, public health and civil rights communities to talk about the progress of the President’s Climate Action Plan.
This week, people across the world will honor our environment and celebrate Earth Day. The League of Women Voters has long fought battles to protect clean air and water, prevent harmful pollutants that contribute to climate change, and inform the public of what they can do to get involved in the ongoing battle to protect public health and the environment.
Monday, April 22, marks Earth Day, during which people across the world will honor the environment. Each year, Leagues from across the country gather in their local communities to give back and protect the environment.
Today, April 22 is Earth Day! Earth Day is a time to celebrate the beauty of our air, water and the environment around us. At the League, we try to celebrate Earth Day everyday by working to make the environment safer from pollutants, defending the Clean Air Act, and standing up for people not polluters. As you celebrate the environment around you today, we hope you will also take the chance to let your voice be heard on a historic regulation by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
