Global Catholic Climate Movement board members are coming to D.C. from around the world for a retreat, and we are taking a night out beforehand to connect with climate justice allies. We will celebrate our colleague Lorna Gold - a climate champion in Ireland - with the North American pre-launch of her book, Climate Generation published by New City Press. Come socialize and meet “one of the planet’s most stalwart and successful climate fighters" (says Bill McKibben).
Global Catholic Climate Movement is building a vibrant movement to respond to Pope Francis' encyclical, Laudato Si’ and care for our common home. We are are working with the global Catholic community to take urgent action against the injustice of climate change and the ecological crisis, and to protect the poor and future generations.
