Divestment

Faith leaders march for climate, call for fossil fuel divestment

 | 

Last Sunday, I joined more than 300,000 people in New York City for possibly the largest demonstration for environmental causes in history, the People’s Climate March.

In addition to bringing together people from across classes, across races and across the globe, the event served as a great interfaith rallying point. Christian clergy, rabbis, imams and a variety of lay folks from many faith traditions boarded and walked beside a large replica of Noah’s Ark, which featured the words: “We are all Noah now.”
