Green Source DFW and The Memnosyne Institute are thrilled to announce that Dallas College is expanding its support of Oak Cliff Earth Day as the event’s premier sponsor.
“We are so excited to have this Dallas icon as our lead sponsor for 2022 OCED,” said Wendel Withrow, Green Source DFW director. “Their commitment to sustainability, higher education and environmental justice for all makes Dallas College the perfect partner for this community wide event.”
The first Earth Day launched 50 years ago on April 22, 1970. While in-person celebrations around the globe were planned for the big golden anniversary, the coronavirus canceled them all, including our own Oak Cliff Earth Day.
We will be sending out an email later in the week, regarding the coronavirus & the City’s current ban on gatherings. What this means is Oak Cliff Earth Day cannot be held as planned. We hope we can just postpone, but depending on what the City decides on extending the ban, we may not be able to. Various news sources indicate that the country is expected to be shut down a couple of months at least.
Our entire country will need to work together in getting beyond this crisis.
Be safe…and please look for an update from us toward week’s end.
Thank you for your continued support and patience.
