National Spotlight on Mall for Climate Justice

Jul 30, 2015 09:21PM
The Lincoln Memorial on the National Mall will be the backdrop for the Moral March for Climate Justice at 10 a.m. on September 24 and all are encouraged to join. Please note that this is a new date.

As Pope Francis is calling on the U.S. Congress to take action to save the planet, thousands will be converging on the Mall to show support for his visit and his recent statement on climate change. The Pope will be in Washington, D.C. as part of his upcoming U.S. tour.

The organizers are a coalition of social justice, faith and environmental organizations and individuals. Their goal is to unite, by common purpose, the strength that is their diversity. All are welcome and encouraged to join in this work, which, they consider, to be the defining moral issue of our time.

The event has been endorsed by many of the nation's leading organizations committed to bring progress in the area of climate change, including groups such as Mom's Clean Air Force, Chesapeake Climate Action Network. the Hip Hop Caucus, EcoSikh, the Washington Peace Center, Church World Service and the Franciscan Action Network.

Location: 900 Ohio Dr., SW. For more information and to register (to get updates), visit MoralActionOnClimate.org.
