Like the migrant caravan from Central America, climate change is often a "hidden driver" behind migration. According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, 22.5 million people have been forced to migrate by climate-related or extreme weather events since 2008. How are faith communities to respond to this growing humanitarian crisis? In this webinar, four panelists will help us tackle this question. Andrew Fuys is the Senior Director for Church World Service's Immigration & Refugee Program. Jasmine Huggins is the Senior Policy and Advocacy Officer for Church World Service. Ruth Ivory-Moore directs the Environment and Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and works within the ACT Alliance coalition of church organizations to address climate migration. Mary Schaller Blaufuss is the Team Leader of Humanitarian & Development Ministries for the United Church of Christ.
This webinar is co-hosted by the Rev. Dr. Brooks Berndt of the United Church of Christ Environmental Justice Ministry and the Rev. Michael Malcom of Alabama Interfaith Power & Light.
