As Earth Day to May Day actions begin, local organizers across the country are starting to look beyond the mobilization at hand. We are receiving a steady stream of requests for the Convergence to continue our shared work – providing support for grassroots organizing, networking, and action on an ongoing basis. We are overjoyed at the prospect of continuing this work!
Earth Day to May Day is almost here, and we want to invite you to put yourself on the Map! We currently have close to 200 actions in over 50 cities on the GCC Mother Earth Day to May Day (ED2MD) Calendar, and we are still growing fast. Help show how big and strong we are growing as a movement and add your actions to the Calendar!
