Call Act Learn Pray

Theme for the week of April 5th: Chemical Attacks and Eco-Justice

 

Call:

In response to the deadly chemical attack in Syria, which has killed dozens including children, the president politicized the atrocity by releasing a statement blaming his predecessor.  Call the White House and tell the president that we don’t want blame and politicking.  We want human lives to be valued and respected in Syria.  We want a swift response to the use of international condemned chemical weapons in Syria.  We want peace.

Act:

People everywhere have a right to clean air, clean water and a safe environment. But the reality is, communities of color and low-income communities have been hurt first and worst by toxic pollution and the climate crisis. Communities across the Midwest – from Flint, MI to East Chicago, IN to the Southeast Side of Chicago – are rising up to demand environmental justice for all.

Join #ResistTrumpTuesdays on April 11th 3:30-5:00 to stand with communities that are on the front line of the climate crisis. Stand with us to fight back against the Trump administration’s proposed cuts to the EPA and demand regional action from EPA Region 5.

We will rally at Federal Plaza and have confirmed speakers from Flint MI, East Chicago IN, the Southeast Side Coaltion to Ban Petcoke, National Nurses United, and Reclaim Chicago.

SCIENCE, NOT SILENCE

It is time for people who support scientific research and evidence-based policies to take a public stand and be counted.

Pray:

God of Peace, we have immense powers to destroy and to create.  Help us all to remember your creative acts, O God.  Help us work for generation, to build up, to create, to make things new, to make things right.  We pray that we might forget how to destroy things.  Wipe from our minds the toxic formulas that might lay waste our fellow human beings.  Amen.
