Acting from our faith convictions, we join our voices with others in the region who call for responsible public policies that promote healthy watersheds.
Public policies are needed to bring about major change and to undo the harm that has been done to our environment, specifically the watersheds of the Chesapeake region.
Citizens and organizations have a moral obligation to engage in the political process in ways that align with our values.
