This weekend, Environmental Advocates of New York will have a table in the activist area at the Clearwater’s Great Hudson River Revival Music & Entertainment Festival in Croton, NY. We will be joining dozens of other groups that are committed to environmental protection, social justice, and a host of other issues. Having worked at the festival before, I can say that it is a fun-filled weekend that anyone can enjoy on their own, with friends or with the whole family.
After spending so much time in an office, it’s great to get out and talk to real people face-to-face about the issues that are a concern to them. Many of the concerns people have are issues that we work on directly. People are glad to know that there are groups like Environmental Advocates fighting for a better environment in our state. While it is great to talk to so many people, I am also looking forward to the prospect of sneaking away from the table for a few minutes to see Mavis Staples perform.
If you’re attending the festival on Saturday or Sunday, please come by the activist area and say hello. If this is the first you have heard about the festival, check out http://www.clearwaterfestival.org/ and consider making the trip. You’ll have a great time!
