Diverse faith traditions call us to care for the Earth, and seek justice with and for vulnerable sisters and brothers. One of the greatest challenges we face in these tasks is climate change – so how do our faiths call us to respond? Come explore this question with an interfaith Climate Justice “Inquiry to Action” group in Ithaca, and build your knowledge and skills for addressing climate change with other people of faith and conscience.

From January 29 – February 26, we will meet Wednesday evenings from 7-8:30 pm at First Presbyterian Church of Ithaca, located on the corner of East Court St. and North Cayuga St. (please enter through the green door on Court St.). Each week will feature a local speaker, discussion, and guided development of personal and congregation-based action plans. Come for the whole series or just for sessions of interest:

  • January 29: Climate Change Basics & Ethical Foundations
  • February 5: Reducing your Carbon Footprint: Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy
  • February 12: The Food-Climate Connection
  • February 19: Speaking Truth to Power: Policy Advocacy for Climate Justice
  • February 26: Follow the Money: Responsible Investing for Climate Justice
