Amid dire news of climate change, the question only intensifies: What do we do now?

As we sort through the accumulating data and endless politics, a vital element gets lost—the moral dimension of the environmental crisis, and its especially punishing toll on poor communities. The time is now for a galvanizing religious and spiritual witness.

Join us on Tuesday, March 12, 2019, at The Cathedral of St. Philip in Atlanta for a conversation focusing on ethical solutions and practical strategies for building a movement that meets the climate crisis. Pulitzer Center Executive Director Jon Sawyer joins Mary Evelyn Tucker, co-director of the Forum on Religion and Ecology at Yale; Codi Norred, program director of Georgia Interfaith Power & Light; and Clifton Granby, assistant professor of Ethics and Philosophy at Yale Divinity School for the discussion.

This event is presented by Yale Divinity School and Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies, and is co-sponsored by the Yale Club of Georgia, with special thanks to The Cathedral of St. Philip. The Yale Program on Climate Change Communication, based at the School of Forestry & Environmental Studies, is one of the Pulitzer Center's Campus Consortium partners.

Reception at 6 pm, with 7 pm start for the program titled, "Beyond Despair and Denial: Facing Climate Change With Moral Urgency and Hope."
