Join our partner organization, Faith Alliance for Climate Solutions in coming together with people of faith and residents of Northern Virginia to hear from advocates and advisers on the critical topic of climate change and what actions we can take to achieve real climate solutions, right now. Speakers will engage attendees in a conversation about how we can respond as a faith community to environmental issues in Virginia to better care for Creation and commit to environmental justice. As we work together to repair our damaged climate, we must make sur.e that everyone most impacted — including low-income people, people of color, the vulnerable, and those on the frontlines — are part of every solution.
