We need your help — in 30 days from now, we’ve got an incredible opportunity in the fight against climate change. World leaders are being invited to a special signing ceremony for the adopted Paris Climate Agreement in New York on 22 April - Earth Day.
Right now, the adopted Paris Agreement is just words on paper.
We need world leaders to sign it and start putting it into action, to help make our world a better, safer place. To make this happen, faith leaders from around the world are coming together to release a powerful statement, calling on world leaders to make this happen and to ramp up their ambition to commit to 1.5°C limit of warming to protect the vulnerable.
This is why we need your help. Faith leaders alone won’t be able to convince world leaders to take action. We need to show that there is huge support from across faith communities around the world.

The more of us to add our voices, the more influential we will be.
As people of faith, we have important moral authority in the world, and also a great responsibility. Our faith tells us that we must act to protect the vulnerable and care for the earth.
By coming together behind this Statement, showing our united voice in support of the Paris Agreement, we bring the world a step closer to the safe, healthy future we want to see.
Please don’t forget to share the Statement online using the hashtag #Faiths4ParisAgreement
Yours in hope, prayer & action,
Rev. Fletcher Harper
