EarthFest – “Restore Our Earth” Virtual Earth Day Event
In addition to hosting Reflecting on Earth Day, the Climate Action Alliance of the Valley participated in another Earth Day event. This one was led by Earth Day Every Day and presented by James Madison University’s Bluestone Communications. In a livestreamed event, the students marched through the campus ending near JMU’s famed Spirit Rock. Before students painted their Earth Day thoughts on the rock, they offered representatives of several local environmental organizations, among them CAAV and 50by25Harrisonburg, the opportunity to present information about the work they are doing.
The graphics below illustrate what CAAV’s and 50by25’s spokesperson, Luciano Benjamin, said. The message was: “The situation is urgent, worldwide action is needed and is occurring, Virginia is acting, and local action is happening in Harrisonburg.”
CAAV is a sponsor of 50by25Harrisonburg and one of our steering committee members, Joy Loving, actively participates in that group’s activities.
