Thanks to Lee and everyone who joined us to honor this Earth Day 2015.

Climate Action Alliance of the Valley invites you to join a 35th anniversary celebration of Earth Day at Massanutten Regional Library in downtown Harrisonburg!
- live music
- nature readings
- special guest speaker, Lee Stewart, from the Great March for Climate Action.
Lee will share his experiences walking across the U.S. from Los Angeles to Washington DC last year in order to bring awareness of the challenge of climate change. We’ll also find out how this journey has inspired his current work with Beyond Extreme Energy and Loudoun 350.org.
All welcome! Free and open to the public. Bring your friends and family!
After our library program, we’ll continue the party at Ruby’s Lounge, 153 S. Main St., across the street from the library, to socialize, visit with Lee and find out more about Beyond Extreme Energy and how we can support them with their work.
In January 2014, Climate Action Alliance of the Valley collaborated with iMatter Kids vs. Global Warming, JMU Mahatma Gandhi Center for Global Nonviolence, and the Shenandoah Group of the Sierra Club to throw a Party for Climate Action which succeeded in raising over $2300 for Lee (Jerry) Stewart to help send him on his cross country trek raising awareness for climate change issues.
