friends in dc …

i’m in australia this week, but if i were in dc, or anywhere close by, i’d be with the good people of sojourners (and thousands more) here:

Join Sojourners at the “Forward on Climate Rally” in Washington, D.C. to tell President Obama we oppose the Keystone XL pipeline!
On Sunday, February 17, we will gather at 11:30 a.m. on the gravel path outside the Hirshhorn Sculpture Garden. After prayer and reflection, we will join the main rally–with thousands of people from across the country–on the National Mall.
If the pipeline is approved, it would clear the way for a devastating amount of new carbon pollution to be released into the atmosphere. As people of faith, we need to stand against this corruption of our environment–God’s creation–that impacts the “least of these” first. Together, we will form a united religious voice for justice at the largest climate rally in history.
Be sure to bring your own signs and banners making it clear that you and your worshiping community understand the call to protect creation.
For updates, stay tuned to Sojourners’ Facebook and Twitter. For more information on the Forward on Climate Rally, click here.
Let’s show fellow rally-goers, President Obama, and our political leaders that people of faith support climate policy and want to stop the Keystone XL pipeline!
