Abrazos: A Community Celebration of Environmental Justice

'I Speak for the Trees'

Earth Day is coming! Technically, isn't every day an Earth day? I digress. Instead of simply turning off your lights for an hour, trek out to the Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge for Abrazos: A Community Celebration of Environmental Justice. On Saturday, April 22, from 1-4pm you can honor Mother Earth by learning something new at educational booths, enjoying music, eating free food, participating in fun activities and more. All ages are welcome, and admission is free. The point of it all is to “honor and organize for … our rights to a healthy environment.” Also, it's part of the five-day Decolonizing Nature conference (see our Arts section for more info) sponsored by The National Hispanic Cultural Center, UNM and more. Let's all unite for justice and this marvelous planet we call home. (Renée Chavez)
