The call to climate justice and protecting Earth as our common home is a paramount moral challenge of our time. Pope Francis, the Dalai Lama, and other world religious leaders have raised their voices to proclaim the urgency of addressing climate disruption.

More and more people of faith are responding to the climate crisis with action – from community organizing to solarize neighborhoods, to lobbying state government to forestall fracking, to engaging in nonviolent direct action to halt building of the Keystone XL pipeline. Skillful strategic actions in these areas complement each other and strengthen the movement for climate justice.

Ready to build your skills for climate justice? Join us June 16-19 for a three-day conference to enhance the power of people of faith to meet the challenge of climate disruption. Beginning with multifaith worship on Thursday evening, we will use plenaries, workshops, and interest groups on Friday and Saturday to deepen our capacity to work with others effectively in three skill areas:

  •  lobbying and moral advocacy in the public sphere
  •  constructive community resilience building
  •  formulating and carrying out strategic nonviolent direct action campaigns.

On Sunday, we will connect our themes and close with a circle of commitment to pledge our next faithful steps to achieve climate justice.

To register, please call 610-566-4507 Ext 167
