This August and September, NCIPL will host an eight-week forum series detailing the important issues facing us this election. These events will highlight our voter reflection guide, feature expert speakers, and educate attendees on policy as well as voting during a pandemic.
The first of these forums, held on August 12th from 12-1pm, will focus on issues of creation care and climate justice. Entitled “Voting Our Values: A Forum on Creation Care & Climate Justice,” this event will consider the ways that climate change, care for God’s creation, and justice for our communities are all on the ballot this election cycle. Featured speakers will include Rev. Glencie Rhedrick of the Charlotte Clergy Coalition for Justice, Rev. Scott Hardin-Nieri of the Creation Care Alliance of WNC and Green Chalice, and Bishop Laticia Godette of York Memorial AME Zion Church in Greenville, North Carolina.
We’ll see you on August 12th!
