#EarthDay2020

Right now, we have the opportunity to shape who we will be when we emerge from the current crisis. As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day this week, we draw from its original intention to come together creatively, virtually, and compassionately for our communities and the ecosystems that sustain us.

  1. Make a pledge. @earthdayoregon challenges you to create a sign with an action you are taking to help build a healthier planet and display it with pride using the hashtag #MyPlanetMyPledge.
  2. Join a movement. #EarthDayLive is a 3-day livestream from April 22-24, bringing millions of people together for the world’s largest digital rally for climate justice. RSVP at earthdaylive2020.org.
  3. Take a moment and breathe.These are trying times” is a phrase we have been hearing a lot lately. As we persevere, expressing gratitude for and connection to the people and the things around us are what will keep us grounded and moving forward. In that spirit, the artwork, created by our very own Heldáy de la Cruz, in this blog’s header is available to download and share.

This Earth Day 2020, we continue to realize our vision for resilient communities, economies, and ecosystems, in our region and beyond. Our incredible community of partners, donors, and friends help bring this vision to life. Thank you for being part of it.
