This Earth Day, hear from different voices 🌍
April 21, 2023

Earth Day in and of itself wasn't a big part of my childhood. Sure, I volunteered to pick up litter in my neighborhood and "Conviction of the Heart" was one of my favorite songs as a toddler, but it wasn't until my late teens — around the same time An Inconvenient Truth was released — that I learned Kenny Loggins performed that song live on the National Mall for Earth Day 1995. Both "Conviction of the Heart" and An Inconvenient Truth were formative to my worldview that nature is a part of our collective home every bit as much as any four walls and a roof, all of which needs recognition and protection. It's in that spirit that I'm pleased to share some ways to get involved with Earth Day events in your own community.
