Join us Thursday, July 30, for ecoAmerica’s next episode of Let’s Talk Climate: The Fierce Urgency of Now: Advocating for Climate Solutions, featuring a conversation with Rev. Dr. Gerald Durley, Board Chair for Interfaith Power & Light, Rabbi Jennie Rosenn, Founder & CEO at Dayenu, and Rev. Brooks Berndt, Minister of Environmental Justice, United Church of Christ.

When Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. spoke at the March on Washington, he described a “fierce urgency of now.” Faith leaders are organizing this year around this theme in the context of climate change. Hear from leaders on the role our faith must play in this Kairos moment to advocate for solutions —  the opportune time to take action before it’s too late, even in the midst of a global pandemic.
