People of Faith in Pittsburgh
An Invitation from Greenfaith Fellowship for the
PEOPLE’S CLIMATE MOVEMENT
Greenfaith is a national interfaith fellowship of people who advocate
for care of creation.
Our many faith traditions all tell us that when we fail to care for
creation we contribute to injustice everywhere. We are seeing this
now in massive global climate-related suffering.
Will you join us for a Multi-Faith Gathering for Climate Justice?

The date is Monday, April 3rd, 7 PM at The Friends Meeting House*.
The purpose is to share resources to engage our faith communities in work for climate justice, leading
to participation in the People’s Climate Movement Marches. Marches will occur both in Pittsburgh and
Washington, D.C. on April 29th.
We will view The Wisdom to Survive: Climate Change, Capitalism & Community. This movie is a
powerful resource which is available to motivate your congregation to become more involved in the
movement for climate justice. We will also provide resources for congregational eco-theological study.
“The Wisdom to Survive offers the most inspiring, enlightening, creative, and practical
overview of the spiritual dimensions of climate change that we've seen. With rare clarity
and depth of insight it reveals the challenges and the new possibilities that this everexpanding
tragedy bestows upon the sons and daughters of God.”
Please join us on April 3rd. The participation of faith communities in the April marches and
beyond is essential to the struggle for climate justice.
We would appreciate a note to one of the addresses below to let us know you will be coming – but
feel free to just show up!
