Eugene, OR — As voter registration numbers plummet across the country because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, a powerhouse lineup of artists, activists, influencers and elected officials will kick off Democracy Summer 2020 Thursday evening at a virtual event.
The virtual rally helped in gathering support to progress on environmental issues with speakers, chanting, live music, and slam poetry. OSPIRG hosted five events this week across the state. Nationally, the Student PIRGs educated and engaged students in over 50 events on Earth Day.
