Amid dire news of climate change, the question only intensifies: What do we do now? As we sort through the accumulating data and endless politics, a vital element gets lost — the moral dimension of the environmental crisis, and its especially punishing toll on poor communities. The time is now for a galvanizing religious and spiritual witness.

Join us for a public conversation focused on ethical solutions and practical strategies for building a movement that meets the climate crisis.
