His talk includes a historical perspective on the environmental crisis, what ICEJ believes about faith and action, how different faith traditions offer solution to the environmental crisis and how ICEJ educating, equipping and mobilizing faith communities to take action for climate resilience.

Investing in Our Values with Michael Richardson

As part of our ongoing Advancing Earth Justice speaker series, Michael Richardson, co-founder of Rivers & Mountains GreenFaith and lifelong activist will address how we can move finances from funding fossil fuel extraction, production and distribution… and instead direct bank deposits, insurance premiums, and investment portfolios to fund local businesses and farms, affordable housing, and development of renewable clean energy.  His activism is driven by the moral imperative to stop funding climate chaos–the same moral imperative that led ICEJ to pressure Chase, Citibank and Wells Fargo to cease loans to the fossil fuel industry. 

Banking on our Future Rally

ICEJ and a coalition of eight environmental justice organizations came together to organize a Third Act National Day of Action in San Diego to protest the big four banks that fund fossil fuel projects by asking people to sign a pledge to divest from these institutions and put their finances in other banks and credit unions that support the environment. In the pouring rain over fifty people joined the rally and watched break dancer performance as well as cut up their credit cards.
