CALENDAR OF EVENTS
Forward on Federal Climate Action with Rep. Omar
MNIPL is excited to partner with Rep. Ilhan Omar for a virtual event that will offer wide perspectives about the critical connection between climate justice and our faith and spirituality.
Faith leaders will speak to why they value being stewards of our planet and the ways their faith communities have acted for climate justice. Rep. Omar will also share details about upcoming federal legislation focused on protecting our planet and addressing the climate crisis, and ways we can engage our own communities in values-based climate action.
Panelists for the conversation include Imam Makram El-Amin, Masjid an-Nur; Ben Connelly, Minnesota Zen Meditation Center; Jayce Koester, Shir Tikvah Congregation; and Beth Divakaran, Park Avenue United Methodist Church.
The event will be live-streamed on MNIPL’s Facebook page. Please RSVP and share your intention to attend. This will help us most effectively advocate as a community for critical issues around climate justice.
