Evangelical Climate Advocacy Days

We have an exciting weekend ahead of us! From April 29 - May 1, a group of Climate Witness Project participants, along with groups from Young Evangelicals for Climate Action and Climate Caretakers are converging in Washington D.C. for Evangelical Climate Advocacy Days. On Saturday, we'll be marching alongside thousands of people at the People's Climate March. On Sunday, we'll be participating in advocacy training in preparation for meetings with our members of Congress on Monday.

Responding to the moral challenge of climate change presents an opportunity for Christians to love God and our neighbor more deeply, and an opportunity for the United States to lead the clean energy revolution already underway around the world. Our Christian witness is more important than ever. We're attending Evangelical Climate Advocacy Days because our leaders need to hear that, as evangelical Christians, we want them to take action on behalf of God's creation and on behalf of the poor and vulnerable around the world.

CRC Members Share Why They're Marching

A few CWP regional organizers and partners shared why they're marching this Saturday; click here to read their personal stories behind each of their decisions to march. Here’s one example:

“I am marching because the gospel requires me to be about the business of restoration in Jesus' name and that includes this world—which our good God created and declared to be good. Travelling to Washington D.C. and marching is a way for me (and others) to declare that our world belongs to God!” - Phillip Leo
