March 2023 Monthly Actions & Meeting W/ Mitch Hescox, Evangelical Environmental Network

Average Rating:

Each month, Citizens’ Climate Lobby supporters gather locally for a monthly meeting where we educate ourselves by listening to a guest speaker. Go to your local chapter's page to find out more about your chapter's plans for listening in. March's Monthly Meeting was held on Saturday, March 11th at 1:00 pm ET and featured a conversation with Mitch Hescox, President of the Evangelical Environmental Network.

In the quest to find common ground between Republicans and Democrats on
climate solutions, communities of faith play an important role in bridging the
partisan divide. The Evangelical Environmental Network, whose members are
focused on caring for creation, is one of the organizations working in this advocacy
space. This month, we hear from Rev. Mitch Hescox, President of EEN, about the
Network’s efforts to educate and mobilize evangelical Christians to advocate for a
stable climate and a healthy, pollution-free world. Rev. Hescox, co-author of “Caring for Creation: The
Evangelical Guide To Climate Change and a Healthy Environment,” serves as a member of the National
Association of Evangelicals’ Board of Directors and EPA’s Clean Air Act Advisory Committee.
