Earth Day 2022: Protect The Future in La Crosse, April 22, 11:30am.
On Earth Day, Citizen Action of Wisconsin will be hosting a rally, press conference, and up-cycle clothing exchange in Weigent Park in La Crosse.
Climate activists, elected officials, student leaders, and others will be on hand to remind us that this planet belongs to the future and we must protect the future. We will be discussing local climate actions happening now, future plans, activists fighting against fast fashion and how our educational system can step up and become climate leaders.
We will also be hosting a free up-cycle clothing exchange. Please bring the clothes you are not wearing anymore and check out the great fashion for free. We want to highlight the impact of the fast fashion industry by making sure we work to reduce our own, personal fashion waste.
Please RSVP now to stay up to date on this important day of action.
