    Summoning the church to be courageous in the face of global warming’s existential threat to current and future generations

    “Racial justice requires climate justice…It’s not merely enough to assert that black lives matter;
    one must fight against the forces that believe that black lives,
    black lungs, and black bodies don’t matter and never did.”
    D. R. Tucker, Climate Activist

    This Saturday, we invite you to take part in a virtual conversation led by the Rev. Mariama White-Hammond as hosted by the Weston Cong’l Church, UCC. An African-American minister and community activist working on environmental, racial, and economic justice issues, Rev. White-Hammond is also the founding pastor of New Roots African Methodist Episcopal Church in Dorchester, Massachusetts. She will speak about the ways that climate change and pandemic have disproportionately impacted communities of color in Boston, helping us start a discussion about how we as people of faith might begin to address these issues.
