Tell Congress it’s time to declare a Climate Emergency. Add your name to the US sign-on statement.

Climate change is an urgent emergency. Government and business leaders have refused to address the crisis for too long. We simply have no time to waste.

Thanks to the visionary and fearless leadership of thousands of young people, the Green New Deal is making climate action the priority it needs to be. As people of faith, it is our moral obligation to stand together with these young people and help lift up their voices as we all work together to save our planet.

The Green New Deal offers a vision, urgency and ambition that matches the crisis we face. It centers the moral values that are at the heart of our religious and spiritual traditions: love, justice, and compassion. It lifts up visionary policy solutions that will address the critical issues of our time. It moves us towards a flourishing future for all people. It protects Earth, our common home.

We will not accept that our ambition should be limited by a political culture that is horribly out of touch when it comes to environmental protection. The danger is real. The time for action is now.
