It’s Friday, it’s Spring, it’s going to be beautiful… get out a bit and come celebrate Earth Day 2022 with the Dems (including new 5th District candidate Josh Throneburg, Sen. Creigh Deeds, and others)! Do yourself (and us) a favor and sample at least one of these events:
The March starts at 3pm at the north side of the UVA Rotunda. The route is only a few blocks long and over by 5pm (or whenever you feel like it… it’s a spring Friday!).
2. 6-8pm Ix Art Park, “Fridays for Future” Festival
Books & painting & stickers for kids, selfies w/Greta Thunberg, music by “The Green Grannies”, voter registration information… and that’s just our booth! There will also be workshops & demos, a Thrifted Fashion Show, sustainability vendors, and a 2019 movie 2040 at 8pm which addresses practical solutions to environmental concerns (the filmmaker’s daughter will reach adulthood in 2040).
3. 6-8pm Stonefield, “Love Mother Earth” Programs
Kid-friendly activities (book readings, painting, stickers), and voter registration info at our booth 6-8pm, then at 8pm they’re showing the 2005 movie Harvests of Hope; meet the innovative farmers, communities, and leaders who are planting the seeds of resilience for the future of food and our planet (Q&A afterwards).
