People of Faith
We have a moral duty
to take care of creation and preserve it for future generations.
to protect the most vulnerable from droughts, flooding and increased diseases caused by climate change.
to build an economy that creates good jobs, clean air and water, and healthy communities.
That’s why, on Sunday, September 21, hundreds of thousands of people will march in New York City for a strong, international climate treaty.
