Save-the-Date: Climate Conference on March 5th at St. Jame
The 4th Annual Interfaith Alliance for Climate Justice Conference features keynote speaker Joan Brown, a Franciscan Sister, recipient of the 2015 White House Champion of Change award, and Executive Director of New Mexico Interfaith Power and Light. Our feisty speaker will share her experiences at the Paris Talks and her insights into Pope Francis’ Encyclical.
A Panel including Joan Brown, Chief Caleen Sisk, spiritual leader of the Winnemem Wintu tribe near Shasta, Humberto Camacho, Humphrey Fellow of Bolivia, and one other will discuss the successes and challenges of their climate-change work.
After a vegetarian lunch, participants may browse the exhibits (Winnemem Wintu Tribe, Cool Davis, Avid Reader with climate-change related selections, a Meatless Monday display, and an Interfaith Alliance for Climate Justice Display).
Two sessions of afternoon workshops offer a range of topics from personal and practical ways to reconsider home energy efficiency, transportation options, and consumption choices. Anthony Palmere and his sister Terry have both raised families without owning a car, and they’re willing to share their story. Michelle Millet will relate her struggles and successes to reduce waste, while Clair Black Slotton and Carol Bourne will tell of their recent downsizing to smaller homes…and how it freed them.
Other workshops will offer you skills for reaching out into the public arena. Kathryn Phillips of the Sierra Club will suggest ways to make your voice heard at the capitol. Chief Caleen Sisk will advocate against a proposed raising of the Shasta Dam, and Humberto Camacho will offer inside views of a country that has granted legal standing to Mother Earth.
