Me (on the right in blue) at a socially distanced Sweep the Hooch event that took place in August of 2020, an annual endeavor throughout the state to clean up litter around the Chattahoochee. We removed over 100 pounds of trash from that particular site.
The climate rally that we had in 2019 at the center of town. We all came with our own signs and unique messages about climate change which caught the attention of our mayor and other local leaders.
Me speaking in front of city hall where the rally encapsulated. It was an impromptu speech, but I think it did the job that was intended.
