Call to Action to Care for Our Common Home
Citizens' Climate Lobby’s Catholic Action Team invites you to their very first virtual CCL Catholic Conference! The sixth anniversary of the release of Pope Francis’ encyclical letter “Laudato Si’ On Care for our Common Home” inspired CCL to hold its conference, entitled “Call to Action to Care for Our Common Home.” The purpose is to explore the tools you’ll need to effectively reach Catholics and activate the Catholic voice to Care for Creation and promote the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act.
Saturday May 15 from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. PDT.
· Bishop John Stowe from the Diocese of Lexington will be speaking live
· Hear from Bishop Robert McElroy from the Diocese of San Diego
· Jose Aguto from Catholic Climate Covenant will be a keynote speaker
Celebrate Pope Francis’ encyclical letter together
Bread for the World: A Story of Strength: The migrant journey
A few months ago, I introduced Bread for the World to two leaders of Adelante Mujeres for a story/video project on a female farmer/organization to interview for a 3-part series that covers migration to food systems. (Adelante Mujeres has received local and national CCHD grants as early as 1993!)
They connected Bread with Mago Reyes and their first video is about Mago’s migration story.
Here is the 6-minute video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dL9_Dk1gjoQ
