Just this week, Climate Witness Project partners across the U.S joined other faith communities and capitalized on the televised CNN presidential town hall on climate change. As people of faith, we expressed why this matters to us and why we are hopeful. See below some quotes from our partners:
“...hope overcomes defeat; new life overcomes death and destruction. Resurrection is possible. We have much work to do [on climate change], but, God is with us for this journey.”
- Rev. Richard Killmer, Maine
“It's easy to feel helpless about a changing climate, but speaking out prophetically and acting justly is truly empowering and even transformative”
- Phillip Leo, Chicago, Illinois
Don’t miss the chance to build on this movement once again with the MSNBC multi-day climate forum on September 19 and 20. More details about this to follow but if you are interested in hosting a watch party for this forum, contact Andrew Oppong at firstname.lastname@example.org.
