Earth Day

In 1970, the first Earth Day was organized in response to a massive oil spill off of the coast of Santa Barbara, along with the alarming effects of cumulating pollution in America generally.  Due to a massive public outcry, later that year the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was signed into law by President Nixon.

Today, despite the many important jobs the public expects that agency to perform for our health, safety, and to try to make our part of the world better than we found it, we've seen an unprecedented recent push in D.C. to defund and hamstring that work.  This Earth Day, many Americans are sending a big message that this is not what Americans want.  We made these laws for a reason: we want our food to be safe to eat, water clean to drink, and air fit to breathe.

Here are the two big Earth Day events going on this weekend:

Sacramento March for ScienceSaturday, April the 22, from 10 a.m. at Southside Park to 3 p.m. at the Capitol. 

The march starts at Southside Park at noon and ends at the Capitol about an hour later, where there will be a rally and speakers.  Show your support for science-based decision making about environmental issues, and against ideological denialism and inaction.  Learn more at and

Sacramento Earth DaySunday, April the 23,rd from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Southside Park.
