Every day we make decisions. Some are habitual and some require a lot of thought and deliberation. There was a little of both mixed in when Hilltown Families contributing writer, Angie Gregory, and her family decided to join the hundreds of thousands of people gathering in NYC for the recent climate rally. Mixed in with the inspiration and magic found at the march was a realization of what drives our decisions and how we can become our own advocate without compromising our values.
This is an eye-opening piece by Hilltown Families Contributing Writer, Angie Gregory, in “Parenting Green” this month. Status quo capitalism provides regular obstacles to addressing the alarming change in the earth’s natural conditions. However, a culture of calling for positive change has had impact and families continue to have a voice that can be heard.
Angie invites our readers to an event in NYC in September called the People’s Climate March that has the potential to be the largest rally of its kind in history. This family friendly event will bring families into contact with like-minded advocates for change. If your family can’t make this event, you can support efforts at home. Angie reminds us that families have a voice, and that your kids can have a voice too!
