Join us in coming together with people of faith and community members across Virginia to engage in a deep conversation about environmental justice. As we work together to repair our damaged climate, we must make sure that everyone most impacted — including low-income people, people of color, the vulnerable, and those on the frontlines — is part of every solution.
Doors open at 7 PM. Space is limited. Program begins at 7:30 PM.
About the forum’s moderators: William Barber, III, is the Strategic Partnerships Associate at The Climate Reality Project. He is the son of Rev. Dr. William Barber, II. Karenna Gore is the founding director of the Center for Earth Ethics at Union Theological Seminary. She is the eldest daughter of former Vice President Al Gore.
The forum is hosted by Faith Alliance for Climate Solutions and co-sponsored by Virginia Interfaith Power & Light, Interfaith Power & Light (MD.DC.NoVA), and Virginia Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival.
