Wildlife enthusiasts and clean energy advocates gathered on Earth Day in Detroit to urge the U.S. Senate to take action on climate change. The crowd of supporters rallied in Hart Plaza and marched to the offices of Senator Stabenow and Senator Levin to deliver signed copies of the Declaration of Energy Independence calling for real progress on clean energy.


Leaders from the environmental, faith, business and veteran communities spoke on the need for strong climate and energy legislation, now. Their message was clear: real progress towards a clean energy economy is one way for Congress to truly honor the meaning of Earth Day while creating much-needed jobs and helping to rebuild our economy.

"Today, four decades after the first Earth Day, millions of us are gathered once again across Michigan and the nation to call for action," said Danielle Korpalski of the National Wildlife Federation. "We are here to recognize one simple fact: We are at a crossroads and we must do even more to fight climate change, reduce pollution and invest in more clean energy technologies and clean energy jobs."
