On the first Earth Day, 20 million Americans called for a cleaner, healthier environment. Their activism helped secure the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts. Now, 35 years later, with the Senate’s recent vote to drill in the Arctic Ntn’l Wildlife Refuge, that activism is needed to counter a growing threat to all hard-won environmental protections.
On Earth Day, April 22 – all the letters will be sent to the congresspersons in your state. Send thanks to those who voted to protect the Artic National Wildlife Refuges and strong diappointment to those who voted to allow oil drilling. Urge those who voted to allow drilling to reconsider their vote.
To join the virtual march from my “impact page” (cheesy but fun) enter here:
“On this Earthday we should consider what strong actions should be taken to save wildlife, its habitat and the environment we share for future generations of Americans. Not only should we continue to protect our Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts, but Congress should end this constant battle over the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Please set aside the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge from drilling once and for all through the Eisenhower-Udall Arctic Wilderness Protection Act (S.261 and H.R. 567).”
