The 2013 National Preach-In on Global Warming is less than a month away! On the weekend of February 8-10, join with other people of faith across America to ask President Obama to address climate change as a moral issue and safeguard vulnerable communities at home and abroad.
Here’s what to do:
1) Register for NCIPL’s Preach-In: What, Why, and How webinar. Allison Reeves Jolley and National IPL’s Campaigns Manager, Andrée Duggan, will be leading the webinar. Together, they will discuss the purpose of the Preach-In, explore this year’s Preach-In website and resources, and field any questions that you may have.
The webinar will be on Monday, January 14 from 1:30-2:30 p.m. Online registration is required.
2) Order your Preach-In kit here. Free, downloadable materials are available. Or make it easy on yourself and order the pre-printed kit with activity ideas, a set of 50 bulletin inserts/postcards to send to President Obama, a table tent global warming fact sheet, and more for just $15. You also have the option of ordering more postcards and a discounted copy of this year’s Preach-In DVD: The Hungry Tide, a 53-minute film about the island nation of Kiribati’s plans for relocation in the face of rising seas.
3) List your event on the map. This year, we’re pleased to offer an interactive national map where you can list your activity, and see what others are doing. Listing your activity is also a great way to attract new people who are interested in a faith response to climate change.
Thanks for taking part in the 2013 National Preach-In on Global Warming. Together, we will join in a strong moral call urging the President to take bold action on climate.
