FAN is proud to be one of many faith-based organizations to sign-on a letter urging Congress to oppose the ‘border wall’ and other forms of border militarization and any efforts to fund such proposals. The letter highlights the many negative and intersectional impacts of the proposed ‘wall’ and increased border militarization along the U.S./Mexico border. The impacts included in the letter, for example migration, the environment, border communities, indigenous communities, and financial cost, are deeply harmful and far-reaching.
As we urge our members and friends to join us on April 29th to march for Climate, Jobs, and Justice, FAN wants to ensure that all those interested, curious, or ready to take action are familiar with the narrative behind why we are marching globally, nationally, and as people of faith.

St. Bonaventure tells us that to love God, we need to love all that God created. He teaches us that what we choose to do here on this earth will have an effect on it. As part of FAN’s commitment to care for all of creation, we have participated in the Polar Bear Plunge for the last few years. This annual event is organized by the Chesapeake Climate Action Network (CCAN) and helps raise funds for important local grassroots efforts on climate justice.
Many faith organizations, including FAN, are working hard to mobilize our networks for the People’s Climate Movement focusing on two major moments. The first of these moments is quickly approaching.
