The Academy’s Our Earth club organized an array of activities from Apr. 19 through the 23 in celebration of Earth Day. And during Rose Project, Alumna Jeanine Ramirez (’16) — who works for the USCCB advocacy division for Laudato Si: On Care for Our Common Home — led one of the projects with primarily virtual students. She taught them about advocacy writing and coached them in co-writing op-eds.
As a result, two groups were formed amongst the students and each wrote an op-ed — one is titled “Why We Should Keep Tampa Bay Sanitary” and the other is named “Making Recycling More Accessible in the Bay.” Achona Online has published both, which can be found below.
