We will help you get the tools you need. Through Franciscan Earth Corps you can be a part of something truly big AND very local.

Our grassroots organizing for social and ecological justice is unique:


A Special Emphasis on Climate Justice

Franciscans work on several issues through Franciscan Action Network (FAN), but our most organized campaign is on climate change. Franciscan Earth Corps members are passionate about many issues and are encouraged to develop ways of advocating for systemic change, and they are invited in a special way to join the efforts of Franciscans for climate justice.
