5th Annual Virtual Mother's Day Climate Rally
Join the NOVA Climate Coalition for the 5th Annual Mother's Day Climate Rally -- the virtual edition. We're rallying for the planet, clean energy, a healthy climate, and a healthy future. Mother's Day was originally a day of political activism, so we're returning to those activist roots. We are determined to protect the climate for our children, our children's children, and all future generations.
After you RSVP, you'll receive an email with instructions closer to the event date!
