On Sunday, October 17th, people of faith from around the world will hang banners from their congregational buildings and homes declaring that now is the time for climate action. We’re inviting you to take part in this global action organized by our friends at GreenFaith by decorating your buildings with courageous messages regarding the importance of caring for this world, and acting on climate change, as a means of loving our human and non-human neighbors. If your congregation meets on Sunday, we also encourage you to name the need for climate action during your service and include prayers for the Earth and all species during your time of prayer.
On Monday, October 18th, we invite you to join with countless other people of faith in calling your senators, member of congress, and President Biden. Name the importance of taking bold action on climate change, divesting (stopping the funding of) fossil fuel projects like pipelines, and investing in renewable energy and sustainable infrastructure. You can also call your bank—asking if they invest in fossil fuels and discussing the necessity of divestment as a moral imperative.
These actions are happening two weeks before the UN climate talks, as a way of coming together in global community to make it clear that governments and financial institutions must do more, and they must do it faster. Learn more here, and let us know how you take action!
