Acting in Faith: Evangelical Climate Advocacy Days
Responding to the moral challenge of climate change presents an opportunity for Christians to love God and our neighbor more deeply, and an opportunity for the United States to lead the clean energy revolution already underway around the world.
Our Christian witness is more important than ever. Our leaders need to hear that, as evangelical Christians, we want them to take action on behalf of God's creation and on behalf of the poor and vulnerable around the world. That is why we are joining the People’s Climate March in Washington, D.C. on April 29 and then visiting our members of Congress on May 1.
Will you join us?
