This year, Earth Day actions have gone digital. In doing so, we’ll have the opportunity to show leaders the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic and the ever-growing climate crisis go hand in hand.
If you’re looking for impactful ways to use your voice and enact change within your local community and worldwide, participate in one or ALL of the actions below.
The on-going global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is challenging to grasp. In the United States alone, millions of individuals have lost their jobs, hundreds of thousands have tested positive for the virus, and daily life has changed in ways we cannot fathom.
Understandably, the news cycle and our collective attention are focused on the virus, economic recovery, and what the future will hold when social distancing and safer at home orders are lifted.
Making physical signs, marching, and participating in community gatherings are second nature to SoCal 350 and our fellow activists. With the spread of Covid-19 and the need for social distancing to protect the health and wellness of our society as a whole, it’s time to innovate and embrace remote activism.
Here are a few recommendations to help further the cause online and by phone.
All of us at SoCal 350 envision a world with equitable clean air and water and a stable climate through a fossil-fuel-free future. We strive to empower Southern California communities to join together for environmental, social, and economic justice. This pursuit is on-going. Our actions have taken place rain or shine, but today we face an entirely new and widespread issue with coronavirus (Covid-19.)
