Climate change and climate justice are the most urgent issues we face. I love 350.org and have been following the work of 350ny but have not been active thus far. I'm working with the Coalition Against the Rockaway Pipeline (CARP) in solidarity with other groups opposing fossil fuels and promoting renewable energy. I still hope to work with like-minded people in the churches, though I get discouraged by the ethos of organized religion.
My name is Ieva Zadina. I'm a retired United Methodist pastor; before that worked in publishing and as a teacher of literature. I'm working for climate justice within my church and outside it.
Your presence in the lobby was excellent --- helpful, encouraging. Thanks for helping organize this event and others.
