Some of the most pressing issues facing our nation have yet to make it into the political spotlight.
One of the most important is the environment. After rolling back decades of progress on cleaner air and water, our leaders are not being held accountable. Our sponsoring organization, the National Council of Churches USA, wants to run an interfaith message in major newspapers reminding people of the importance of having political leaders who care for God’s earth. Click below to sign the prayer petition and help place it in the newspapers:
NCC’s message reminds Americans that air pollution is warming our planet, poisoning our air, and triggering asthma in our children. That toxic waste blackens our waters and women worry about mercury contamination in the fish they and their children eat. That no forest, mountain, or flatland is sacred or safe from drilling, bulldozing and development. And that the poor and vulnerable suffer first and most.
Our political leaders must act now to protect God’s good earth for current and future generations. Help voice concern for God’s creation by supporting the publication of this statement across the country:
