Those who have done the least to cause climate change are suffering the most

We know the effects of climate change are most harmful to those who have done the least to cause the problem.

Those in places like Haiti, the Congo, or Ethiopia are the most vulnerable:

85% of the world’s poor are rural, and they rely on their land for food and income.

The problems produced by climate change are undeniable: impoverished communities are suffering from droughts, soil erosion, and an inability to produce enough food.

As followers of Jesus, we must be bold in confronting the things that harm the poor. We must also take responsibility for protecting the environment. Taking action on climate change does both.

Right now, we have an opportunity to make change.

Several years ago, our nation committed $3 billion dollars to help impoverished communities adapt to the reality of climate change.

This money was supposed to be spent on irrigation projects, as well as agricultural training and adaptation, to help people build more resilient communities that can withstand a changing climate.

Yet, our nation only delivered ⅓ of the pledged funds. Urge our leaders to keep the promises made, and help the poorest in our world adapt to climate change with access to agricultural training and development, irrigation, and other solutions to build more resilient communities.

Sign the petition and urge our leaders to keep the promise to protect the poor.

Our Migrant Savior: Solidarity with migrants and refugees

Take the Solidarity Challenge

This 7 day devotional helps us take action and embody solidarity for our migrant and refugee neighbors. When God became one of us he could have chosen any life. He chose that of a refugee. Few details of Jesus’s early life are known, but Matthew’s gospel tells us this: violent, state-sanctioned persecution forced Jesus’ family to flee Israel and go to Egypt, where they lived as refugees. The experience of Jesus and his parents is mirrored in the challenges faced by 70 million displaced people in our world today.
