Join educators around the country in taking action during the week of Earth Day, which falls on Saturday, April 22, to demand green, healthy schools and a sustainable future for all our communities.

These activities are part of a national educator week of action to highlight environmental justice issues.

Our schools are dirty, outdated, and full of harmful toxins. CPS needs a green schools plan that is inclusive, transparent, and prioritizes Black and Brown communities and brings those schools into the 21st Century to avoid the worst impacts of the global climate crisis and carry us into a sustainable future.

There are lots of ways you can get involved with celebrating Earth Week, from social media posts to teaching lessons about environmental issues. There’s also a bike ride on Earth Day itself (see flyer below). Check out our resource guide for even more ideas!

In solidarity,
