Climate Justice Advocacy Webinar (May 26)

The State Advocacy working group of National UMC Creation Justice will present a webinar on “Climate Justice Advocacy During the Coronavirus Pandemic,” Tuesday, May 26at 8 p.m. EST/7 p.m. CT.

During this time of pandemic and lockdown, it is imperative that effective public policy advocacy for climate justice for all people continue unabated at all levels of government. During this webinar, participants will receive an Introduction to Advocacy 101 and will hear from United Methodists who are on the frontlines of advocating for climate justice.

Advocacy is just as important on the local and state levels as it is on the federal level. And even if you have never been an active advocate, this webinar will give you the tools and resources to help you become an effective advocate.

The webinar will be moderated by Rev. Mel Caraway, a Global Ministries EarthKeeper from the North Texas Annual Conference. Other participants will include the following: Christina Krost, Faith in Place Outreach Coordinator and UMW Be Just Be Green leader, Illinois Great Rivers Annual Conference; John Hill, General Board of Church and Society; Liz Lee. United Methodist Women; and Cara Fleischer, Global Ministries EarthKeeper, Florida Annual Conference. There will be time at the conclusion for questions, answers and comments.
