Mission Center: The Episcopal Church: Advocacy

Climate Change

Episcopalians have shown that together, we can respond quickly and responsibly to climate change. Whether it is a diocese’s decision to recycle or the Church’s call for wide-scale reform, together we can make a difference. The Advocacy Center, in association with the Episcopal Ecological Network and the Eco-Justice Working Group of the National Council of Churches, is responding to the many challenges of climate change both an home and in the world.

Please refer to our Action section to learn more about what you can do about climate change.
