Faith & EcoJustice Roundtable

Saturday, April 27, 2019 • 1:30-3:30pm
Briscoe Carpenter Livestock Center, Heritage Room

Faith leaders from diverse denominations, along with seminaries and theological colleges are increasingly involved in discussing and helping to resolve environmental justice issues. Conservative and liberal congregations alike find common ground in caring for the environment. They also recognize that low income and communities of color often bear a disproportionate burden when it comes to air and water pollution, hazardous waste and other environmental woes. Faith leaders can be influential change agents in encouraging people to become better stewards of the environment and step forward in caring for God’s creation.

EarthX is pleased to host a roundtable on April 27th from 1:30 to 3:30pm on the role that faith leaders and religious institutions can play in addressing environmental and ecojustice issues. The roundtable is an opportunity to engage the faith community in the broader EarthX conversation about protecting our planet. The roundtable is designed to convey hope, inclusivity and compassion for those marginalized communities, especially children, disproportionately impacted by climate change and air pollution. Space for this event is limited, so please register.

The interactive dialogue will allow for audience participation and center on these key questions:
  • How can faith leaders address environmental justice issues in the face of climate change?
  • How can predominately white and predominately black churches collaborate to address thecosts to humans from air and water pollution?
  • What does the Bible and other religious texts tell us about being active stewards of theenvironment?
  • How can houses of worship become better prepared to address natural and environmentaldisasters?
  • What is the role of religious seminaries in addressing ecojustice issues?
Speakers:
  • Rev. Mitchell C. Hescox, President/C.E.O. of The Evangelical Environmental Network
  • Miguel A. De La Torre, Director for the Center for Eco-Justice, Iliff School of Theology
  • Rev. Gerald Durley, Board Chair, Interfaith Power & Light
