Climate change has become a growing issue in churches across America with black faith communities leading the charge. The trend in these communities came as no surprise when you consider that minority faith traditions have historically been at the forefront of America's most pressing social justice issues. From Selma to climate change, black faith leaders have maintained a keen awareness of how social justice issues affect one another, and more importantly, why faith commands action.
Blessed Tomorrow's leader and senior pastor at Chicago's Trinity United Church of Christ, Rev. Otis Moss, has joined forces with over 1,000 faith leaders to initiate "Green The Church," an interfaith organization that works toward instituting creation care in black communities.
