How do we engage in creation care that is intentionally inclusive of diverse cultures and the environmental concerns relevant to their communities?

Join us for this webinar where we'll hear about some specific strategies for congregations to communicate their commitment to diversity, inclusivity, equity and justice in the their environmental actions supporting engagement from  diverse communities.

Our speaker will be Mariah Davis, who is Senior Policy & Campaigns Manager of the Choose Clean Water Coalition (of which IPC is a member). Mariah manages outreach, grassroots advocacy, and civic engagement efforts to support the Coalition's policy priorities. Mariah coordinates conservation organizations efforts in Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Delaware, New York, West Virginia and the District of Columbia. 

We'll begin our time together with honoring the original inhabitants of this region through a Land Acknowledgement offered by RuthAnn Purchase of the Friends of Lenape Everywhere.  

We'll also learn from congregations that are doing cross-cultural collaboration for watershed stewardship. Our congregation examples featured will be People's Community Church in Baltimore and Saint Camillus Catholic Church in Silver Spring.

These webinars are designed to supplement the core Faithful Green Leaders Training, but everyone is welcome to participate.
