Faiths 4 Climate Justice Rally and Resources
October 15 - October 18
Destroying the planet is against our religion! Two weeks before the UN’s global climate negotiations in Glasgow, faith communities around the world will rise up to urge our political and financial leaders to take action. Using an international climate activist platform created by GreenFaith, the Interfaith Coalition for Earth Justice (ICEJ) will sponsor two projects in San Diego:
- Fri. Oct. 15-Sun. Oct. 17–faith communities will call for climate justice using the riches of their own traditions and resources (here) provided by GreenFaith and ICEJ
- Mon. Oct. 18 1:00 – 2:15 PM–faith communities and their supporters will come together for the Faiths 4 Climate Justice Rally at the County Administration Building on the west side at the fountain, 1600 Pacific Highway, to present 5 key demands on climate and equity. We ask that these demands be prioritized in the County’s Regional Decarbonization Framework. Our Rally will also feature music, street theatre, reflections and prayers from a diversity of faith traditions. Co-sponsors include SanDiego350 and the CA Poor People’s Campaign.
