Let's start talking honestly about climate change. Instead of staying stuck in a state of paralysis and denial, how can we face reality while still finding hope and a sense of purpose to take action?

Join us for a 90-minute forum to hear leaders from different communities speak about why they got involved in fighting climate change, how they stay engaged, and their vision for the future.

Our keynote speaker is Rev. Margaret Bullitt-Jonas, Missioner for Creation Care, MA Conference, United Church of Christ & Episcopal Diocese of Western MA

She will be joined by:

• Jameelah Muhammed (Sierra Club & Interreligious Eco-Justice Network)

• Taylor Mayes (CT Roundtable on Climate & Jobs)

• Juliana Barrett (CT Sea Grant)

This forum is free, but RSVP's are required. Light refreshments will be served.

To RSVP, click on the Facebook Event page.

Hosted and sponsored by St. James Episcopal Church and co-sponsored by the Interreligious Eco-Justice Network.
