Earth Week has come to an end, but the need for activism and the spread of factual information regarding climate change and the organizations negatively impacting our planet continues.
Thursday, April 23rd was officially deemed “Divest Day.” Climate activists across the globe took to social media to show their dissent against Chase Bank and other financial institutions funding the fossil fuel industry and deforestation.
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.
