The Green New Deal (GND)

is a bold and compelling proposal to transform the US energy system in a fundamentally new direction, fueled by values of love, justice, and compassion. The initiative is a comprehensive answer to the deadly Achilles’ heels of modern economies: dependence on dirty energy, low-paying jobs, environmental degradation, and growing inequity. For people of faith, the GND is a tangible expression of key values that animate their visions of a better world.

Resources include an easy way to send a letter to the editor of your local paper  and selected sacred texts which “speak to the value of the natural world and the moral duty we share to create a compassionate and just society. These two commitments – to respect nature and to build a loving, fair response to climate change, are the values that underline the Green New Deal.” Please check out their People of Faith for a Green New Deal Discussion Guide for Facilitators.
