Thirty years ago, 20 million Americans across the country rallied for the first time in peaceful demonstrations in favor of environmental reform known as Earth Day.

Today, as the Trump administration slashes the EPA and denies climate change, more than 190 countries made their voices heard in the March for Science. Those who couldn’t make it to the streets, took to social media. Among those famous names speaking out: Leonardo DiCaprio, the Clintons and Pope Francis.

“Lord, bring healing to our lives, that we may protect the world and not prey on it, that we may sow beauty, not pollution and destruction,” the leader of the Roman Catholic Church wrote.

Chelsea Clinton chose to take a pop culture-friendly look at the events, commenting on a sign one marcher was carrying that tweaked a quote from “The Princess Bride.”

Here are but a few of the notable figures who joined in on this day of awareness.
