On 11 March, grassroots people of diverse religions are coming together around the world for the biggest-ever faith-based global day of action to sound the alarm for climate justice.
A global, multi-faith coalition of established and emerging climate leaders in faith communities – across 14 countries – has come together to create an ambitious statement “Sacred People, Sacred Earth” and an accompanying day of action that reflects our deepest values and beliefs.
As a global, multi-faith, grassroots alliance, we stand for equity and compassion for all, and we deplore injustice. We know that we cannot afford to wait for governments and financial institutions to act first; we understand that change starts with us. We are organizing grassroots people of diverse religions in support of the following demands, and we are leading by example.
We call for:

We will be sounding the alarm for climate by making noise: blowing the shofar, banging drums, whatever fits your faith tradition.
