The Earth Day Action Parade

is Sat. April 19th, in conjunction with The Earth Day San Francisco Festival (EDSF). The March/Parade will be from Justin Herman Plaza at 11:30 to the main EDSF Festival at the UN Plaza, with a short Rally at the Main Stage, at 1pm. Pre-events (rallies, marches) as feed-ins from local groups across the Bay Area are being planned.

Impact – Bringing Political Action Back to Earth Day

Earth Day is the single largest day of environmental action. This year, the SF theme is “Action”. Last year 8,000 attended EDSF, aiming for 10,000 this year. Climate and environmental activism is front and central this year.
