Creation Care, Faithful Advocacy Webinar Series
Thursday, January 14, at 6:30pm
Faithful Advocacy Webinar Series: The UM Creation Justice Movement State Advocacy Team has scheduled its next webinar for Thursday, January 14 at 7:30 pm EST | 6:30 pm CST. This webinar series will focus on faithful advocacy during the age of COVID, with an eye toward the intersections of climate justice and racial justice. We will be emphasizing the importance of telling your story and building a network of grassroots advocates in every state.
Each year, Metro works with community partners to release the Cold Weather Community Response Plan that includes a Metro-run overflow shelter. This year, the overflow shelter will be located at the Fairgrounds and will open when the temperature is projected to drop below 28 degrees.
In order to ensure that everyone can make it out of the cold this year, we are asking WeGo to make their rides free to people who are experiencing homelessness and/or need to get out of the cold when the temperatures are projected to drop below freezing. While the bus passes they have given to the community are a great start in moving toward transportation justice, we must do more during these unprecedented times.
Please join us in emailing Metro Council Members and WeGo CEO Steve Bland to ask them to provide FREE transportation to those who need it when the temperature drops below freezing this year! (And please share this call to action!)
