Taos resident and environmental activist Robby Romero participates in Earth Day Live

Earth Day Live has released the lineup for its three-day live streaming event online.

Political and cultural leaders from all over will participate in the event, which is being hosted from April 22-24 to coincide with the 50th anniversary of Earth Day.

Several major musical names will perform, including Jack Johnson, Jason Mraz, Aimee Mann, Questlove, Talib Kweli, Angélique Kidjo and more. Musicians Moby and longtime Taos resident Robby Romero will engage in conversations with actors Joaquin Phoenix and Patricia Arquette.

Earth Day Live's wide-ranging lineup includes past presidential nominee (Al Gore), politicians (Stacey Abrams, Rep. Lauren Underwood), activists (Rev. William J. Barber II, Bill McKibben, Denise Hayes), actors (Jane Fonda, Matt McGorry), journalists (David Wallace Wells, Sharon Carpenter) and medical professionals (Drs. Sweta Chakraborty and Michael Greger).

Each of Earth Day Live's three days has a theme: Strike (April 22), Divest (April 23) and Vote (April 24).

On April 22, the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, participants will show "collective power and unity through community building and storytelling," while "amplifying the voice of indigenous leaders and youth climate activists," the event's website explains. On April 23, programming by the Stop the Money Pipeline Coalition will offer a path for economic restructuring that shifts power from polluters and politicians to people and the planet. The final day will drive voter registration and political engagement.

"These are scary times," Earth Day Live's website notes. "Many have lost jobs, loved ones and are uncertain what the future looks like. Environmental, worker and health protections are being rolled back, worsening the crisis. Now more than ever is the moment to come together and demand a just response to the pandemic and the climate crisis. In times of great turmoil, movements have been able to fundamentally transform society in ways that were never thought possible."

Earth Day Live will stream live from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. ET via earthdaylive2020.org and platforms including Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Twitch.
