Kathleen Rogers is the President of Earth Day Network. Under her leadership, EarthDay.org has grown into a global year-round policy and activist organization with an international professional staff. In 1970, 20 million people mobilized to call for greater protections for our planet. Since then, many policies and programs have been developed, but we still have a lot of work to do.

EarthDay.org aims to educate all children on the risks and opportunities of climate change and to develop the civic skills to fight back. Schools should not just be a place where children learn the basics, but laboratories for invention, creativity, and social justice.
In addition, Earthday.org is committed to getting people excited about voting in connection to their environment. They believe that this education begins in our schools.
Through collaborative working with our Department of Education and Congress along with teachers and school districts, we can create a powerful force tied to long-term economic growth.
This Earth Day, they are promoting an equitable, green economy across the US tied to education, civic training and jobs.
