Today on Your Call: Is Earth Day effective?
On today's Your Call we’ll reflect on Earth Day.

It’s time to reclaim Earth Day and return it to its 1970s roots when millions took to the streets. What will it take to get millions into the streets today? Join us at 10 or email email@example.com. How would you save Earth Day and the environmental movement? It’s Your Call with Holly Kernan, and you.
