At Full Court Press Communications, every day is Earth Day! For the past 20 years, we’ve been honored to serve over 40 conservation and environmental clients with one common mission – to conserve and protect our beautiful earth for future generations. To honor Earth Month and the important work of our clients, we asked FCP staff: What are you reflecting on during Earth Month? Read some of their answers below!
Suzanne Spencer, Senior Communications Counselor:
“I’ve always loved exploring parks and open spaces close to home, and these experiences are now infinitely more special when I share them with my daughter. Our current favorite activities include watching bees fly through our yard and walking through our neighborhood to enjoy the spring blooms. Earth Month is a reminder for me to slow down and soak up nature’s beauty around us!”
Erika Brink, Senior Communications Counselor:
“I’ve been so lucky to work on some of FCP’s environmental clients that work to protect new national monuments. These are historical, cultural, or environmentally special places that presidents and Congress can preserve. I’ve loved learning that incredible California landmarks like Muir Woods and Joshua Tree National Parks were initially protected as National Monuments. For me, that work has reemphasized some of the reasons it’s important to protect and conserve public lands. We should safeguard amazing nature for future generations to enjoy, increase access to nature for everyone to appreciate, and help preserve California’s amazing biodiversity, ecology, and natural resources for generations to come. “
Faye Saechao, Visual Storyteller:
“Growing up in a large household with immigrant/refugee parents, we couldn’t afford to travel very far or very much. Fortunately, our family found respite at local parks and open spaces during the weekends where we went on long hikes, had family BBQs, or jumped into rivers and lakes to cool off. The parks weren’t always gorgeously scenic or well-paved but my siblings, cousins, and I were always thrilled at the freedom to run around, get dirty on the grass, climb trees, catch lizards, pick flowers, and enjoy unlimited fresh air. This Earth Month, I’m celebrating those memories of being in nature with my family. Working with our conservation clients the past few years has shown me that my story is common and important. We need to make nature more accessible to families and communities! It’s not only important for physical health but also mental health.”
Dan Cohen, Principal & Founder:
“FCP’s first real environmental client was the amazing group Earthjustice (EJ). We were asked to help them create an annual communications plan and one that would integrate with their fundraising/development calendar. What is remarkable is two-fold. First, the leadership that EJ showed on issues so long ago is still a core of today’s environmental movement. They use litigation and communications in a strategic fashion to help shape public dialogue. Second, so many individuals who sat in that room 12-15 years ago today hold leadership roles in organizations working to preserve our lands and climate and ideally have brought with them some of the communications planning principles we shared with them many years ago.”
