People of faith have the moral obligation to care for the gift of God’s creation. As you may have heard, people from around the United States are convening in New York on Sunday, September 21 to join the People’s Climate March and other events which urge the United States to become fully engaged in international climate change negotiations. The United Nations will convene that week to help set the stage for negotiations at the larger international gathering in Paris in late 2015.
UN Secretary, General Ban Ki-moon, is urging governments to support an ambitious global agreement to dramatically reduce global warming pollution. With our future on the line and the whole world watching, we’ll take a stand to bend the course of history.
We’ll peacefully flood the streets in historic numbers, both in New York City and in solidarity events around the world, for a world safe from the ravages of climate change; a world with good jobs, clean air and water and healthy communities.
The march begins at 11:30 a.m. at Columbus Circle 58th Street, Sunday, September 21 in New York City. For more information, visit http://peoplesclimate.org/, or contact Judy Magida at email@example.com.
