This year is the 50th anniversary of the first Earth Day, a powerful opportunity to join together and build an unstoppable climate movement leading to Election Day. On Wednesday, April 22, we will march in solidarity with our Youth Climate Strikers to the MN Capitol, followed by an MNIPL-led interfaith prayer gathering and opportunity to talk with legislators. Stay tuned for more information about all statewide events, and here are some details:
