Nature Protest: Speak for the Trees

New Yorkers – come speak for the trees (and other green wild things) at CIty Hall!

The United Nations is calling for a global biodiversity agreement in 2020, akin to the Paris climate accord. Given the urgency around the global extinction crisis and “insect apocalypse”, let’s demonstrate our *flower power* on May 22 – the International Day of Biodiversity.

We’re asking New York City Council to 1) pass a resolution in support of this U.N. biodiversity summit & 2) to act on local nature conservation issues in NYC. Because extinction is forever.

*Please come with your signs and Lorax-like rhymes – and reach out via email if you’d like to speak*
