At Rock the Earth, we believe artists and musicians are especially equipped to reach people at their core, crossing cultural and political divides that threaten our planet. Through art and music, we can inspire communities to unify, mobilize, and fight for our environment.
Founded in 2002 by environmental attorney Marc Ross, Rock the Earth has partnered with some of music’s biggest names and galvanized support for dozens of conservation issues. Through a robust base of volunteers, Rock the Earth has educated millions of music fans about environmental threats and protections.
In 2017, Rock the Earth took the next step in its history and joined the League of Conservation Voters Education Fund, a national environmental nonprofit dedicated to advocating for environmental protections. Since becoming a program of the League of Conservation Voters Education Fund, Rock the Earth is expanding its national reach to advocates to ensure the existence of a sustainable and healthy environment for all.
We believe that everyone is afforded the same rights to clean air, clean water, lands and a healthy climate, no matter your zip code or the amount of money in your bank account. By partnering with artists and the music industry— musicians, concert venues, festivals—whose work often bridges cultural and political divides, reaching people at their core and creating shared experiences, we can connect with people and engage them in civic action that will lead to better environmental conditions for all communities.
