Join Us: National Faith and Climate Forum at ACLS 2021

By Anita Fête Crews

Coming out of a year of multiple crises and a decisive election, 2021 is our moment to forge a path forward to a stable climate starting with ambitious American leadership on solutions.

The American Climate Leadership Summit (ACLS 2021), celebrating its 10th year, will bring game-changing future-shaping ideas and a diversity of leaders together to ensure climate change is a local, regional and national priority. Building upon ecoAmerica’s MomentUs initiative, ACLS 2021 will inspire public support for bold and just climate policy, grounded in a multi-sector organizational and individual sign-on commitment to climate action.

Day 1 of the Summit, April 27, will kick off with the National Faith + Climate Forum. Our moral imperative to care for one another and God’s creation spans all faiths, politics, and cultures. People of faith are building momentum on local, state, and federal climate action, but we can do more. Join us to learn more about successful efforts and initiatives, get honest about why we haven’t successfully activated more people of faith, and brainstorm new “on-ramps” – including community and collective action to break down partisan narratives, systemic injustice, and to activate people to climate action with compassion, accountability, and hope.
