LIGHT A LIGHT FOR LIMA: Commit2RespondLast Updated on 2014-11-26 15:47:51“To change everything we need everyone.”- Slogan of the People's Climate March NYC 9/2014
You are asked to join an international, interfaith effort to change the course of the impending climate crisis. World leaders will be meeting in Lima, Peru for a UN Climate Summit from December 1 -12, 2014. There they will establish the fundamentals of an agreement to be signed in Paris in December 2015. They need to know that people of all faiths and spiritualties are holding them in our thoughts, meditations, and prayers—supporting their efforts to reach an agreement and bearing witness to their decisions.
