EVENT DATE: Sep 24, 2015
Support Moral Action on Climate as we try to raise funds for a rally on the National Mall so that the large crowds can see and hear Pope Francis' historic words. We have a fundraising goal of $50,000 to ensure there is a stage, jumbotrons and sound.
September 24, 2015, will be a historic moment, as Pope Francis speaks to Congress. Tens of thousands of us will be just footsteps away from the Capitol, flooding the National Mall with a show of support for the Pope's Encyclical letter as he calls for urgent action on economic, immigrant and climate justice. The Washington, DC events provide an opportunity to elevate concerns about the climate crisis while Pope Francis is in the nation’s decision making Capitol.
There will be a sea of national and international press at the National Mall. The American people will be watching and our Congressional representatives will see and hear that we are a growing and powerful moral movement, touching the lives of people from all walks of life. Together we will carry our shared banner, “America’s Moral Duty: Take Action for Climate Justice Now.”
We have over 50 organizations endorsing this event. Help us make this historic rally a reality.
