Pledge to be a Faith Climate Justice Voter!
There are deep inequities and racial injustices in our communities and nation. This is a moment for fundamental change. We need leaders who share our values of loving our neighbors and caring for Creation and are committed to ending structures of oppression, ending environmental injustices, and tackling climate change.
TAKE THE PLEDGE
I pledge to vote with climate and Creation in mind.
I am pledging to be a Faith Climate Justice Voter to put love into action for every living creature and for every vulnerable community suffering the impacts of our changing climate, from sea rise, to extreme heat, to devastating droughts, to supercharged storms.
My pledge to vote for climate justice is rooted in environmental justice. I am in solidarity with all who are disproportionately burdened with climate impacts, including Black, Brown, Indigenous, and low-income communities.
I believe that our nation’s elected leaders and our public policies should reflect our shared values. By pledging to be a consistent voter and vote with climate justice in mind, I am communicating the values of caring for God’s Creation and our children’s future.
You pledge to vote. We remind you about the upcoming election. It’s so easy.
