      Nature Protest: Speak for the Trees

      New Yorkers - come speak for the trees (and other green wild things) at CIty Hall! The United Nations is calling for a global biodiversity agreement in 2020, akin to the Paris climate accord. Given the urgency around the global extinction crisis and “insect apocalypse”, let’s demonstrate our *flower power* on May 22 - the International Day of Biodiversity.  We're asking New York City Council to 1) pass a resolution in support of this U.N. biodiversity summit & 2) to act on local nature conservation issues in NYC. Because extinction is forever. *Please come with your signs and Lorax-like rhymes - and reach out via email if you'd like to speak* Design credit for the flowers and butterfly shown in photograph -- artist and activist Julie Peppito. Art fabricated by members of Get Organized Brooklyn.
