Protecting our Environment - Adam Knight for Medford City Council

Protecting our Environment


Young people across the world are uniting over one common cause- our environment. They're begging their leaders to take action when it comes to combating climate change- and the Medford City Council is listening. With dysfunction surrounding our environmental policies at the federal level, taking action locally has never been more important.
