WE DID IT!
Our future looks brighter already with the recent election of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. To those who had the hard discussions with neighbors, worked the phone banks, sent out letters, volunteered at the polls, and most of all, voted, THANK YOU. We are exuberant at the idea of making bigger environmental strides than ever with the support of an administration who cares about this planet as much as we do. The climate change fight is far from over, but let's look to the future as we make this planet great again!!!
