Happy 50th Earth Day! We believe that the best way to protect the health of those we love, and our entire community, is to protect our planet. That’s why environmental justice is so important to us. The pandemic of COVID-19 exposed the truth of environmental injustices. People of color have more underlying and serious health conditions, including heart disease, respiratory diseases such as asthma or chronic bronchitis and diabetes.
