Chicago Earth Day to May Day Town Hall

April 22 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

50 years after the first Earth Day, we are approaching irreversible destruction to our communities. We are seeing some of the most devastating impacts of environmental injustice and racism play out in front of us through the COVID-19 crisis.

COVID-19 is a crisis for all, with specific danger to vulnerable populations: workers, undocumented immigrants, Black, brown, Indigenous, frontline communities, people with disabilities, and incarcerated people.

Now more than ever we are called to action.

The Earth Day to May Day Chicago Coalition unites unites labor, community and environmental justice organizations during this public health, economic, and environmental justice crisis.

While we cannot gather in the streets, we will share the stories of the intersecting crises of our time together as part of our Virtual Earth Day Town Hall.

Join us at noon on April 22 to grapple together with the rapidly changing political landscape and take action together as we build the strong community, labor, and environmental justice partnerships we so desperately need.

Please make sure to fill out the Action Network link listed under tickets to join the town hall via Zoom. If we reach capacity for the Zoom room, you will also be able to watch the town hall via Facebook Live.
