Positive climate news has felt hard to come by – but this week, we got an enormous piece of it when we learned Senate Democratic leadership reached an agreement on sweeping climate legislation. This is a huge deal, and is the result of decades of persistent advocacy and activism. We deserve to celebrate!
On Friday, August 5 we’re gathering at noon in Philadelphia to reflect on our successes, (hopefully) celebrate the passage of game-changing federal climate policy, and rejuvenate ourselves for the obstacles we know are still ahead.
If you’d like to let us know you are coming, you can register here.
The fight to mitigate the worst impacts of climate change and build a just, equitable energy system is far from over – but taking time to celebrate incremental progress, and to thank our elected officials, is critical. As people of faith, we have a moral obligation to care for our planet. This is a crucial step forward and we should celebrate this victory as climate cannot wait!
Spread the word! Please share this event with your networks. We’d love for your members and partners to come out. You can find the facebook page for the event, some social media graphics, an RSVP landing page, and a partner toolkit that includes all of the above plus some sample email text, for you to adapt however you’d like.
We look forward to seeing you there!
