FAN and GCCM Working Hard to Promote Petition in U.S.

With the Holy Father's visit to the United States quickly approaching, FAN and Global Catholic Climate Movement have been working hard to promote signers to the Catholic Climate Petition.

In recent weeks, both the Philippines and Brazil have committed to collecting millions of Catholic signatures in their countries. The petition is addressed to world leaders and calls for drastic action to dramatically cut carbon emissions in order to keep the global temperature rise below levels recommended by scientists in the environmental community. Along with other similar petitions, it will be collectively presented to world leaders ahead of the COP 21 negotiations in Paris at the end of this year. These signatures represent the faith voice in the climate conversation and offer a united stance that leaders need to hear.

Won't you take a minute to add your name?

FAN was given the opportunity to help produce this video about our moral responsibility as people of faith to care for God's gift of Creation.
