First and foremost, faith is at the heart of our work. As people of faith, we are called to act on climate and care for our common home. EJC initiatives encourage congregations, clergy, and communities to be aware and able to articulate the moral dimensions of climate change and environmental justice issues from a faith perspective based in love.
Creation Care is the commitment to be stewards of God’s creation.
The work of “Advocating with Compassion” is the faithful work of justice. This work is grounded in our values, faith traditions, spiritualities, and the work of countless colleagues who have committed themselves to doing climate activism in a more just way.
