Make the planet part of your plans
For those interested in environmental issues and climate change, LEAF, the Loras Environmental Action Forum, is holding a rally at Washington Park at 12 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 27. At 11:30 a.m., students interested will march down Loras blvd from Keane Hall to Washington Park, which is about half a mile away. There will be local politicians including former President of the Iowa Senate, Pam Jochum, Loras alumni.
At the rally, there will be not just local politicians, but an interfaith ceremony of multiple faiths. There will also be music, but the main purpose of this rally, according to LEAF, is to get people out and campaigning to support Climate Change policy and enacting legislation. Rally attendees will have the chance to share their opinion and views to the public via an open mic session at the very end of the Rally.
If you are interested in this event, contact sophomore Bob Johnson and senior Jake Jansen. Be apart of this movement that could change the future, not just for us, but for the next generation of Americans. LEAF seeks to advocate for sustainability and has made great progress at Loras in the last year when getting a composting system for the Cafeteria and also tagging monarch butterflies for scientific research.
If you want to be apart of change, LEAF encourages you to come to the rally. You can follow this event on LEAF’s Facebook page and follow them on Twitter.
