The session will outline the theological foundations of Catholic climate advocacy, the various ways it is expressed, and how U.S. Catholics are equipping and galvanizing organizations and individuals to go forth in this work. It will take place Thursday, July 15 from 5:00 – 6:45 PM ET and be led by four Catholic advocacy experts:
Following the session, you will be able to work with other Catholics in your legislative district to develop and implement a climate advocacy plan.
