On Sunday, October 26th, FAN participated in an interfaith workshop program in Connecticut. People from various faiths came together to hear keynote speaker, Dr. Mary Evelyn Tucker, a senior lecturer and research scholar from Yale University. Mary Evelyn talked about what faith communities can bring to the climate change discussion and how our "principles will guide us through a difficult change" that needs to happen for the future of the planet to survive.
