Earth Day at 50: BlueGreen Alliance
On this 50th anniversary of Earth Day, the BlueGreen Alliance -- which unites America’s largest labor unions and its most influential environmental organizations -- argues that "the actions we take to create quality jobs and to protect working people and the environment must go hand-in-hand, and that together, we will build clean, thriving and fair economy." Americans are often asked to choose between jobs and the environment, says the Alliance, "But as we face increasingly severe impacts of environmental challenges like climate change and adapt to an interconnected global economy, we can no longer choose one or the other. The BlueGreen Alliance believes we can and must choose both." Earth Day Live, a three day livestream mobilization connecting the fights against the coronavirus and the climate crisis and striving to build a society rooted in sustainability and justice, kicks off today.
