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.
FAN has begun a series of Environmental Justice training workshops in Catholic communities of color all over the U.S. Read about our first successful workshop here.
Following the November elections, many Imams and leaders of Muslim organizations sent a letter to president-elect Donald Trump expressing their concerns about anti-Muslim rhetoric during the campaign and appointments to the Trump transition team of individuals who speak negatively and falsely about American Muslims. They point to the rise in hate crimes against Muslims since the election, and are very concerned about a proposed Muslim registry which would be unconstitutional.
At this special time of the year, we are inspired by the story of the Nativity and the images it provokes. From the poor displaced couple made to give birth to their Son in a stable, to the shepherds caring for their flocks and the gifts of the Magi, we share a collective tradition of gift-giving. One of the strongest messages of Christmas is generosity.

After the divisive election season this year, FAN invites you to take a pledge to move forward with civility.
The Franciscan Action Network is proud to count ourselves among the many faith leaders and organizations working in solidarity with the Native people of the Standing Rock and other tribes peacefully protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline from going through their sacred lands.
