Earth Day 4/19: A Tree Grows in Harlem

  • Apr 19, 2014 · 12:00 PM

(see the end for RSVP instructions)

For the last few months we have been busy arranging a special day in the Hamilton Heights section of Harlem, and would like to see you there with families or friends. Please do register if you plan to attend. Here's a great invitation from our collaborator and Community Organizer Charles Calloway from WeAct (West Harlem Environmental Action):

I want to invite you to a community Earth Day event on April 19th. Earth Day was started in NYC in 1970 and since then there has been much progress and awareness raised on important environmental issues. However, there is still lots of work and education ahead.

On April 19th, from noon- 5pm a dozen community based and city-wide environmental organizations, including Beloved Earth Community of Riverside Church are coming together for “Earth Day in West Harlem”.

Our community (like other low-income communities of color) has a history of environmental injustices but also has many treasures that we enjoy.

We will be hosting series of educational workshops on important environmental issues and also having a community BBQ at Frank White garden with music, presentations and a community clean-up.

We hope you can join us and join others who care about preserving and improving the health and environment of the community.

Please RSVP today and reserve your spot. We are limited to 150 people at the BBQ.

Email : [masked] or[masked] ext 314.

For more info just let me know, Charles [masked]

Hope to see you soon and Happy Earth Month!
