Our purpose as a steering committee is to contribute to the on-going education of congregants about climate change issues and to promote informed action to mitigate climate change and its impact. Climate injustices are one of our central concerns.
Our focus for the coming months is on gathering information related to what is happening on a national, regional, and local scale after President Trump pulled the U.S. out of the Paris Accord. Our concerns are on leadership, subsidies, and funding for research.
