This year marks the 40th anniversary of Earth Day.
More than one billion people in 190 countries held events, took action and commemorated the historic date this past weekend.
In Washington, DC, EarthDay.org’s global headquarters, the action took place at the National Mall, in an event that could very well be the turning point to advance climate policy, energy efficiency, renewable energy and green jobs: The Climate Change Rally 2010.
And Latism was there as their Live Tweeting partner!
The rally included performances and appearances from some of the brightest stars from Hollywood, TV, Music, Politics and Activism, among them:
• John Legend • Joss Stone • Director James Cameron • Giovanni Ribisi • Sting • The Roots and our very own Willie Colón!
Here is WILLIE’S MESSAGE TO HIS LATISM FANS:
We put together a slideshow of the event for your viewing pleasure – second only to having been there! ENJOY 🙂
