2020 marks Earth Day’s 50th anniversary. Fifty years ago it was estimated that 20 million people organized across the United States and helped catalyze the modern environmental movement.

Although the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, prevents us from gathering in person like when one in ten Americans did on that first Earth Day, or like Oaklanders have traditionally done to volunteer, we can still organize and take actions for the Earth from our homes.

Join the movement remotely!
