Building an Inclusive Climate Movement to Create Community Power

Climate change is rapidly creating a danger to civilization which will soon affect hundreds of millions of people world-wide, and disproportionally affect poor, minorities and indigenous communities. Yet the political, organizational and grassroots efforts to date have not created the cohesive political power necessary to seriously reduce carbon emissions or affect meaningful climate mitigation. Civilization itself is endangered.

On May 8th through 10th we will gather leaders from the various faith denominations, youth and grassroots climate activist organizations, who will take the first steps to create the organization, legislation, media tools, and other resources necessary for a powerful and cohesive national climate change movement.

Friday Reception 6:30 pm
Saturday Conference (Lunch and Dinner Provided) 9:00 am to 9:00 pm
Sunday Conference (Breakfast Provided) 9:00 am to Noon
