What an Earth Day!
League of Conservation Voters
(April 22, 2017) — What an Earth Day! To change everything, we need everyone, and today was a true show of force!
We were here in Philadelphia for our annual state League conference, and today we joined forces with friends and allies from across the country to march for science and kick off a week of action leading into the Peoples Climate March this Saturday, April 29. We have less than a week to make the Peoples Climate March on 4/29 the biggest environmental protest in history. But to do that, we need your help.
What: Peoples Climate March
When: Saturday, April 29th, 2017, 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM
Where: Washington, D.C.
(Find the event on Facebook here.)
Here’s What You Can Do:
* Join the Peoples Climate March — RSVP! If you haven’t already, sign up to march with us here in D.C. or across the country. We are joining the Fossil Fuel Resistance bloc, meeting at 11 a.m. at the corner of Jefferson and 3rd Street for the lineup. Stay tuned for more details on an earlier meeting location specifically with LCV staff where you can get signs, water, snacks, and shirts!
* Plug into daily actions leading up to the march. Between now and Saturday there will be daily actions as we mobilize from truth to justice. Check out activities near you.
* Plan your trip. Check out these logistics and do’s and don’ts before you march.
* Share that you’re going on social media! We know that Donald Trump and members of Congress are on social media — we need to make sure they see what we’re building!
If you have any other questions around march logistics email us at email@example.com. It’s crunch time — We can’t wait to see you.

Reject Trump’s EPA Cuts!
Heather Williams / The Democratic Legislative Campaign
(April 22, 2017) — Today is our first Earth Day under Donald Trump â€“ and it’s absolutely crucial we use this day not just to celebrate, but to act.
The Bannon-Trump budget proposes cutting more than $2.5 BILLION from the Environmental Protection Agency. That’s enough to cripple the agency’s essential mission, cost thousands of desperately-needed jobs in rural communities, and let Trump’s billionaire cronies off the hook for poisoning our air and water.
The only chance we have to stop Trump’s devastating EPA cuts is if grassroots activists like you speak up NOW to show them we won’t let them get away with it.
Protecting our environment starts in our own communities — at the grassroots level — and this chapter of our fight is no different. We need thousands of supporters, from all across the country, to band together to tell Trump that his outrageous cuts will hurt our families and communities.
