After the IPCC report, it is even more obvious that on-going and future climate change will affect those with fewer resources more profoundly than others. One of the places to discuss and re-visit our commitment to a solution is the church, a faith-based community with a moral purpose.

In an era of increased lack of political support for low-wage working and poor Americans, it falls on us to delve into the systemic issues where climate change and inequality meet. We need to understand as a culture what is going on and be able to articulate it.

There's a war on the poor, the unemployed, the working class, and it is time to wake up and weigh in.

Please join us! Free of charge.

Moderators: Beth Ackerman (Riverside) and Chris Fici (Union), GreenFaith fellows

Co-sponsored by the Beloved Earth Community of Riverside Church, and Union Seminary

Note: For those interested in attending church, the service begins at 10:45 at Riverside in the "Nave"
