People’s Climate Mobilization, April 29

April 29, 2017. Let’s March.

New year, new resolve. Time to mark your calendars for April 29th, 2017. That’s the date of the People’s Climate Mobilization, a major march in Washington, D.C., when we will come together with hundreds of thousands of people to reject Trump’s attack on our communities and climate, and push forward with our vision of a clean energy economy that works for all.
For information and to register for the march in DC, click here. For information about People's Climate Movement, click here. To learn how to join the faith contingent at the March, how to mobilize your community of faith, and where to get  information and downloadable resources, visit here. Please walk with me!  (And please join me the next morning when I preach about the climate crisis at three services of Holy Communion at St. Columba's Episcopal Church, 4201 Albemarle Street NW.)
