April 22, 2020, marks the 50th anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement in the United States in 1970, building upon centuries of environmental protection led by indigenous communities around the globe. This year is historic for another reason as a global pandemic reveals the emergent consequences of the erosion of living systems and the exploitation of communities on a planetary scale.

Many of us are learning, organizing, and volunteering remotely to honor Earth Day, Week, and Month. Now, just as it is imperative to stay home to protect ourselves and our neighbors, it is imperative to act together to work towards a livable future.
