I am honored to be giving a talk on “Climate Justice: Why Should We Care?” at First Presbyterian Church of Ann Arbor on April 26, 2020.
It was supposed to be a live in person talk, but due to the pandemic, I will be doing it via Zoom. The presentation will be available later for the public.
It is always great when churches are concerned about climate justice. First Presbyterian Church is doing a whole series. You can view them all.
My talk will be on why climate justice is important and how we can reimagine theology which works towards climate justice. Indigenous groups, poor, women are the most affected by climate change and therefore we must care for the earth in order to protect the most vulnerable. I will draw from my two edited books Planetary Solidarity and Making Peace with the Earth.
I will end with the question of what can we do as individuals and churches to protect the earth. Join me.
