This is the third of an ongoing series of Faithful Advocacy webinars being put on by the United Methodist Creation Justice Movement.
This webinar will present information on climate policy action already taken or planned by the Biden Administration and prospects for Congressional action and what shape that might take. This will also be an opportunity to find out ways to engage on an ongoing basis with the public policy advocacy efforts of the United Methodist Creation Justice Movement.
We will be focusing on two primary areas of action:
— Deep and fast reduction of climate-changing greenhouse gas emissions and
— Climate Justice — public policy action to address past, current, and future harm to vulnerable populations as well public policy that helps fossil fuel industry dependent communities make the transition to the clean energy economy.
Presenters include Wes Gobar with Evergreen Action; John Hill with the UM Board of Church & Society; and Jan Berry and Andrew Hartley with the Federal Climate Legislation Working Group of the United Methodist Creation Justice Movement.
We hope you will register right away and join us for this education-leading-to-action webinar.
