Meeting with EcoAmerica and NRCCC October 16, 2023
Following the Prayer Breakfast, several of us met at the EcoAmerican office in DC. EcoAmerica is building a diverse network of major institutions and thought leaders in five sectors—faith, health, communities, higher education, and business —who have the power to inspire tens of millions of Americans on climate change. https://ecoamerica.org/
The purpose of the gathering was to begin conversation on how EcoAmerica and NRCCC might collaborate together on climate and related issues. The meeting went well, with follow-ups to come. Both entities bring strengths to share.
On October 2, EcoAmerica’s faith-based arm, Blessed Tomorrow, launched ONE HOME ONE FUTURE, with 31 U.S. denominations and religious groups. This campaign will be centered in local congregations that commit to positive action on climate.
Moving Forward: A Guide to Climate Action For Your Congregation and Community provides information and resources to reduce energy use, to build resilient houses of worship as refuges from a changing climate, and to encourage support for policies that better care for creation.
