Bill McKibben has called upon all of us to engage in a historic grassroots mobilization called The People’s Climate March in New York City immediately before the UN Summit on the Climate Crisis there. If you would love to be in New York but can’t make it across the country, EcoFaith is inviting you to mobilize a team from your faith community to participate in the “People’s Climate March in Portland” on Sunday, September 21st.
Just announced, new details below!!!
Pre-gathering, 2:00pm The Wilderness Way Community, on behalf of the entire EcoFaith Recovery network, will be singing, drumming and teaching songs to prepare and inspire us for the march at St. James Lutheran Church, 1315 SW Park Ave, Portland. This will be the place for congregations to gather so we can participate in this action together!
3:00 p.m. – Rally and march begins at Portland Waterfront Park’s South Bowl, Portland, Oregon
Immediately Following the March location: St. James: 1315 SW Park Ave, Portland(on the SW corner of Jefferson). We will gather to join in our collective practice of reflection and evaluation of the event!
