This year’s program highlights will include a tribute to folksinger/activist Pete Seeger, who would have turned 95 on May 3rd. We’re excited to announce that two very talented Hudson Valley musicians, David Bernz and Danny Einbender, will perform some of Pete’s songs as part of the morning program.
We will also be featuring guest speakers, including: Assembly Environmental Conservation Chair Bob Sweeney; the Senate Environmental Conservation Chair and Vice Chair, Mark Grisanti and Tony Avella; and Assemblyman Brian Kavanagh, chair of the newly-formed New York State Caucus of Environmental Legislators, as well as representatives from the environmental community.
This year’s priority issues will include fracking, climate change, child-safe products, toxic waste cleanups, and GMO food labeling. As always, participants are welcome to bring up additional issues of concern when they meet with their legislators.
We hope to see you again this year! Please sign up today at http://tinyurl.com/
