What can churches and their members do to support the Green New Deal and actualize their care for God’s creation? Here are five actions they can take:

#1 Share the story of faith-rooted support for the Green New Deal. Find stories, videos, and graphics on the Facebook Page for the Pollinator.

#2 Join a July webinar on mobilizing faith communities for the Green New Deal. It will feature Varshini Prakash, one of the leaders of the organization that brought the Green New Deal into public conversation. Prakash is a co-founder of the Sunrise Movement and its Executive Director. Sign-up now!

#3 Write an op-ed or a letter to the editor about faith-rooted support for the Green New Deal. The world needs to know where we stand and why. For an example, see this op-ed by the Rev. Jim Antal in the Des Moines Register.

#4 Preach and teach about the Green New Deal in church. Check out what seven preachers known for their work in caring for Creation had to say in offering tips for talking about the Green New Deal from the pulpit.

#5 Host a Candidate Forum at your church that addresses the Green New Deal. For tips on hosting a forum, check out this resource from Our Faith Our Voices.
