The “Political Fun” group is participating in (count ‘em!) three Earth Day events. As many Dems as possible should come out (in your Cville Dems T-shirts!) to show the local environmental community that we are the environmentally responsible party.
- 3pm UVA Climate March – starts at the North side of the Rotunda and ends at the park in front of the UVA Main Heating Plant, located on the corner of JPA and West Main Street (where the George Rogers Clark Monument used to be). The march will end by 5 pm at the latest.
- 6-8pm Earth Day Tabling – at IX Art Park (Fridays for Future) with a performance by The Green Grannies. Nancy Damon is our booth coordinator.
- 6-8pm Earth Day Tabling – at Stonefield (Love Mother Earth). Barbara Shenefield is our booth coordinator.
We’re registering new voters and chatting with attendees as always at all three, but at events #2 and #3 we’re also doing kid-friendly activities (e.g. reading picture books and coloring).
Events #1 and #2 will feature our new cardboard cutout of environmental celeb Greta Thunberg; come by and take a selfie!
