On March 11, our community’s houses of worship are invited to join together to hear inspiring calls for climate justice and to make “sacred sounds” by ringing their bells, blowing their shofars, and sounding their gongs to raise awareness that climate justice is the urgent calling of our time. It’s an online Zoom event that starts at 9:30 am with messages of climate justice efforts from around the state, and an opportunity for attendees to support climate legislation during the event.
At 11 am, the faith community is invited to join people all over the planet and country to make “sacred sounds” for 15 minutes to raise awareness of the urgent need for climate justice. Participants are encouraged to be creative and share photos and videos on social media with the hashtag #RingtheBells4Climate to amplify the message.
Together we will ring the alarm about the climate emergency that is already hurting Floridians and the need for a just transition to clean renewable energy in recognition that climate change disproportionately harms the poor, people of color and indigenous people.
Registration: Please register at Eventbrite here to receive the Zoom link.
