On Fridays throughout the world this past year, students walked out of classrooms and went into the streets to compel action in addressing the climate crisis. What started as a one-person protest by Greta Thunberg has grown to a movement of millions in over 160 countries and at least 2000 locations. Youth are now calling upon adults to join them for a week of action from Friday, September 20th to Friday, September 27th. Already, the strike planned for the 20th is shaping up to be one of the largest mobilizations in the history of the climate justice movement. Learn more about the climate strike and how faith communities are getting involved in the effort. Our special guests will include Abby Mohaupt from GreenFaith, Rabbi Katy Z. Allen from the Jewish Climate Action Network, Kristin Barker from One Earth Sangha, Michelle Peedin from North Carolina Interfaith Power & Light, and Sara Shor from 350.org.
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 and the People's Justice Council.
