The Citizens’ Climate Lobby – Newport group and 350 Oregon Central Coast will be sponsoring a virtual
video/audio public event coming live to your home or office to celebrate 50 years of Earth Day. The event will be held on Earth Day, April 22nd from 6:00 to 8:30 pm on the Zoom video conference platform. The event will feature local musicians, elected officials, and environmental/service organizations. “While we have confirmed a number of musicians, elected officials, and other leaders to play music or
speak, we are reaching out to the Lincoln County community for others who may wish to participate in the event,” says Martin Desmond, one of the organizers of the event. “Each of the participants will have anywhere from 5 to 8 minutes to broadcast from their home or office about the importance of Earth Day.
Given the Covid 19 virus, we are encouraging presenters to be positive about all of the great accomplishments of our joint efforts over the past 50 years.” The virtual event will be carried on the Zoom video/audio platform. The format of the program will be shifting the video from one presenter to the next presenter by the host. The members of the audience will be muted although they will be able to show their video on the side. At the end of the presentation, the planis to turn on the microphones of everybody and allow everyone to sing America the Beautiful or some other appropriate song.
Individuals and groups who are interested in presenting are asked to contact Martin Desmond at cclnewport@gmail or call 541-968-5143.

About Citizens’ Climate Lobby and 350 Oregon Central Coast:
Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL) is a non-profit, non-partisan, grassroots advocacy organization focused on
national policies to address climate change. The Newport group is one of ten groups in Oregon. Nationally, CCL sponsored 3,296 public events and 1,656 lobby meetings in 2019 with chapters in 87% of
the Congressional districts. CCL supports a market-driven carbon fee and dividend approach to reduce
carbon dioxide to 50% of 1990 levels while creating 2.8 million jobs.
350 Oregon Central Coast, an affiliate of the international 350.org, encourages local citizens to become
active on climate issues. One of the major goals is to reduce CO2 levels from 410 parts per million to less than 350 parts per million which climate scientists believe is necessary to protect the Earth’s climate.
