Heading For Extinction (And What We Can Do About It): An Extinction Rebellion Presentation

Extinction Rebellion NYC is forming affinity groups with members of the United Church of Christ. These groups will be self-organized using resources and trainings provided by Extinction Rebellion NYC. Opportunities will exist for UCC communities to address the climate crisis by participating in non-violent civil disobedience actions within their own communities and in other cities around the country. The collaboration between XR NYC and the UCC will begin with this Heading For Extinction (And What We Can Do About It) presentation led by William Beckler, a founding member of XR NYC and former church and labor organizer. This talk includes an overview of the current science of climate change, information about the effectiveness of direct action, and reflections on the role of faith communities in the intersections of social justice and creation stewardship.
