Whether or not you attended the Alliance’s October webinar, Environmental Justice is Racial Justice: Faith Communities Respond, you’re invited to join a virtual follow-up conversation with our Creation Justice Community, and co-chair, Rev. Betsy Sowers, on Wed., January 25, from 7:00-8:00 p.m. (EST). Bring your questions, and if your congregation is already engaged in environmental justice ministry as part of your racial justice commitment, strategies to share. Let’s talk about what’s next in our ministries at the intersection of racial and climate justice.
As preparation, please view, or review, the webinar, moderated by Betsy, featuring Dr. Robert Bullard (the “father of environmental justice”), Rev. Dr. Deb Conrad (formerly pastor in Flint, MI), and Rev. Mariama White-Hammond (AME pastor and environmental justice advocate). You can find the recording here, and if your time is limited, start at 10:19 minutes for the speakers’ presentations
