Happy Earth Week! While we strive to act with the environment in mind every day, we’re grateful for the occasion to shout out our 350Brooklyn activists – thank you! – who are seeking to foster a better world, and make a brighter future possible. Here is our April round up of three quick actions you can take to help our communities and our planet flourish.
Have an activated week!
