The Oakland County Earth Day March and Rally will ask Oakland County communities to seize this moment to fight climate change.
A first-of-its-kind event in its ambition and scope. The Oakland County Earth Day March and Rally will ask Oakland County communities to seize this moment to take administrative action to fight against the climate crisis while creating justice, protecting future generations, and creating sustainable jobs.
Our communities can begin creating community-wide plans that tackle climate change and leave us a sustainable world.
We ask that you please mark your calendars for the morning of April 23, 2022. We will have art, live music, a march, and speeches from our political leaders. This event will take place in Royal Oak, MI, which will be releasing its citizen-driven climate action plan around Earth Day.
