During the first 100 hours of the new US administration, it’s vital that people of faith show our love for the Earth, and our commitment to people, planet, and communities. Around the country, people are organizing vigils – with diverse faith communities and people of good will – to show our care and commitment publicly.
Religious Leaders from the interfaith community will be present to implore the new Administration: Keep Good Faith On Our Climate Commitments
Green Faith and Interfaith Power & Light, as part of the People’s Climate Movement, along with the United Church of Christ Council for Climate Justice and other earth care groups are organizing these vigils in Milwaukee, Madison, Green Bay, Janesville and Ashland.
First 100 Hours Vigils are being held in five locations around Wisconsin on January 20 (Green Bay Jan 23). Our purpose is to offer support and encouragement to those who care for the Earth as one administration hands off to another. The Peoples’ Climate Movement, GreenFaith, Interfaith Power and Light, the United Church of Christ Council for Climate Justice and many others have endorsed these vigils, being held all over the nation. Locations:
Ashland – Northland College campus, Jan 20 time TBD
