LIRS Webinar: “God, Migration, and the Climate Crisis”
Oct 20, 2020
Join Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS) as they address the topic “God, Migration, and the Climate Crisis.” The virtual panel discussion is set for Tuesday, October 20 at 3 p.m. EST.
Where does faith fit into the understanding of climate change? How can faith communities mobilize to help those affected by climate displacement? What can people of faith do to protect our planet and those living on it?
Moderated by LIRS CEO Krish O’Mara Vignarajah, the panel includes celebrated environmentalist and New Yorker columnist Bill McKibben, ethics and climate justice expert Dr. Cynthia Moe-Lobeda, and Pastor Tommy Richter, who has witnessed the effects of climate change on his congregation in a remote Alaskan village firsthand.
Explore the intersection of climate displacement and faith. Panelists will discuss religious participation in public discourse and policy on environmental issues, faith-based sources of environmental knowledge, the reality of climate displacement and ways it will continue to affect faith communities, the call to environmental advocacy, and religion’s role in articulating new forms of social justice.
