EPPN: Act on climate, march on Washington

[Episcopal Public Policy Network policy alert] On March 28, President Donald Trump released an executive order that rolled back critical government policies curbing greenhouse gas emissions. Through this action, the Trump administration limits the ability of the U.S. to confront and address our changing climate and to preserve our clean air and water. His executive order fails to protect the American people of today–and generations to come–from the harmful impacts of climate change.

The Episcopal Church recognizes climate change’s damaging effects on communities around the world and calls on Episcopalians to advocate for climate change mitigation and adaptation. Next month, marchers will gather in Washington, D.C., to raise their voices to President Trump, urging him to take bold action on climate change. Will you join them?

Will you attend the People’s Climate March?

    I am so happy to see the EPPN and ENS promote this important action for Climate Justice, clean energy job creation and greater protection of front-line communities! May all the Bishops in the US sign onto the Bishops’ Statement against Donald Trump’s executive order of yesterday to turn back regulations aimed at safeguarding the health and well being of all God’s creation. Join the Multifaith Contingent at the People’s Climate Movement March in DC, Saturday, April 29th! “The ultimate test of a moral society is the kind of world it leaves to it’s children,” Dietrick Bonhoeffer, German Lutheran Pastor.
