Cleaning ATL for Earth Day


by Oscar Cain

The League of Young Voters partnered up with the Pittsburgh Community Association, Inc., and a host of volunteers to clean up the Pittsburgh community in downtown Atlanta.  Both organizations are invested in the community and maintaining its beauty. In addition to picking up trash we planted fresh tomatoes and other vegetables in the Welch St. garden to harvest soon.

It was an exciting opportunity to clean up our community and also celebrate Earth Day.  By picking up trash we were able to show Mother Nature that we appreciated Her. It’s important that we keep the environment pollution-free because clean air equals healthier children. #EarthDay2013

Words From A Real OG: I Can’t Breathe The Air

The O.G. has a upcoming record called, “Eco Twerk,” that is a genuine masterpiece! He gave us a sneak peek during his #EarthDayLive Interview.
