Two Vigils in Wilmington: 4:00 or 5:30 pm
Rev. Peter Morales, president of the Unitarian Universalist Association, reminds us that
Climate change is the gravest danger facing humanity today. We are already experiencing its effects — rising sea levels, catastrophic storms, species extinction — but the potential effects of climate change are even more devastating. And while climate change affects all of us, its consequences will be felt most profoundly by the most impoverished and marginalized of the world’s communities.We cannot remain silent in the face of such a threat. We are compelled to respond.
Tomorrow, Sept. 23, people of all ages and faiths around the country will join voices to pledge action supporting the message of Climate Action as a Moral Imperative. As Pope Francis addresses a joint session of Congress, we will send our Delaware legislators the message that the time for moral climate action and legislation is now.
