On April 22, 1970, 20 million people took to the streets and college campuses and hundreds of cities to protest environmental ignorance and demand greater protections for our planet. This first Earth Day sparked the passage of major environmental legislation in the U.S. including the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts, and the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency.
Citizens’ Environmental Coalition (CEC) is pleased to partner annually with Discovery Green Conservancy to host Earth Day Houston and mobilize actions across the globe. Together with our sponsors, we fight for a cleaner, safer, more just and sustainable world that protects and supports all of us.
Keep an eye out for more information on Earth Day Houston 2023, tentatively scheduled for Saturday, April 22, 2023.
Volunteer opportunities are available by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. See you in April!
