Climate Advocacy and Justice

Written on: July 13, 2021

Below is an invitation with details to attend the Advocacy Breakout Session, July 15, 2021, of the upcoming “Laudato Si’ and the U.S. Catholic Church: A Conference Series on Our Common Home” co-sponsored by Creighton University and Catholic Climate Covenant. It should be very informative and well done. The session will be recorded for later viewing.

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops supports legislation to address climate change through carbon pricing. Catholic Climate Covenant is working to help Catholics strengthen their advocacy around this policy. Since support from our Representatives is especially important to passing such climate legislation, we invite you to attend our conference Advocacy breakout session.

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:

  • Jose Aguto, Associate Director, Catholic Climate Covenant
  • Meghan Goodwin, Associate Director of Government Relations, U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops
  • Marianne Comfort, Justice Coordinator for Earth, Antiracism, and Women, Sisters of Mercy of the Americas
  • Chris Kerr, Executive Director, Ignatian Solidarity Network

Following the session, you will be able to work with other Catholics in your legislative district to develop and implement a climate advocacy plan.
