Climate Migration: Responding with Faith, Care, and Equity
Migration stemming from the damage done to our climate is underway right now as the lives of people around the world are being uprooted and disrupted. From sub-Saharan Africa and the Pacific Islands to Alaska and Louisiana, we are seeing the present consequences of drought, extreme weather, and rising sea levels. According to a recent UN climate report, 20 million people have been displaced each year since 2008 due to extreme weather that is often exacerbated by the climate crisis. While climate-related migration is bound to increase, there is much we can do as people of faith to both mitigate the severity of the climate crisis and reduce worsening inequities amid forced displacement. This webinar will feature those working to address climate migration from a place of deeply held values:

-Drocella Mugorewera, Executive Director for Bridge Refugee Services
-Geronimo Ramirez, Maya Ixil Leader for the International Mayan League
-Rev. Irene Hassan, Minister of Refugee and Migration Services for the United Church of Christ
