Next week is the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. During this time of COVID-19, we’re thinking about this year’s 2020 theme: climate action. As is the case with COVID-19, climate change disproportionately impacts Black, Native and Latinx communities.

In light of this topic, we share this blog from Trust for Public Land, interviewing organizer Arturo Sandoval about his role in the history of Earth Day - a day that for generations has driven people to defend the planet we call home and to defend the most vulnerable in our communities.
