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.
This weekend, I gathered with folks from across the country for the largest rally on climate change in U.S. history! The Forward on Climate Rally took place on the National Mall in Washington, DC, and aimed to let the Obama Administration know that there exists strong public support for climate change action.
In last night’s State of the Union (SOTU) address, President Obama addressed many crucial issues affecting our country. His remarks touched on some of the League’s priority issues including voting rights, climate change, immigration and gun violence.
