In order to prioritize peaceful interactions, peaceful resolutions to conflicts, and nonviolent communication, we must prioritize peace education.

Saving Us: A Climate Scientist’s Case for Hope and Healing in a Divided World by Katharine Hayhoe

Called “one of the nation’s most effective communicators on climate change” by The New York Times, Katharine Hayhoe knows how to navigate all sides of the conversation on our changing planet. A Canadian climate scientist living in Texas, she negotiates distrust of data, indifference to imminent threats, and resistance to proposed solutions with ease. Over the past fifteen years, Hayhoe has found that the most important thing we can do to address climate change is talk about it—and she wants to teach you how.

In Saving Us, Hayhoe argues that facts are only one part of the equation when it comes to changing hearts and minds. We need to find shared values to connect our unique identities to collective action. This is not another doomsday narrative about a planet on fire. It is a multilayered look at science, faith, and human psychology, from an icon in her field—recently named chief scientist at The Nature Conservancy.

Drawing on interdisciplinary research and personal stories, Hayhoe shows that small conversations can have astonishing results. Saving Us leaves us with the tools to open a dialogue with your loved ones about how we all can play a role in pushing forward for change.

Faith Communities Go Green partners with religious communities to create a more sustainable and equitable future for all by mobilizing their moral voice to reduce the risk of catastrophic climate change.

These public conversations will explore the politics of race and religious freedom by centering the experiences of marginalized communities when it comes to public education, voting rights, and environmental justice, including housing reform and security.

In light of the Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the rise of both political violence and the emboldening of Christian nationalism and its various extremist elements, we will be looking closely at the role of religion and our understanding of religious freedom in the context of a crumbling democracy and our hope for the future. The rising threat of Christian nationalist driven political violence is central to our convening now, as is developing the resources for those who gather to quickly mobilize and take action. Attendees will have the opportunity to not only hear and learn from experts in the field, but to receive the training they need to respond in their contexts as appropriate.

During this program, participants will hear from scholars, policy advocates, and community leaders who are making invaluable contributions to these critical discussions. This program is designed to encourage participants to think through practical ways to take action on religious freedom issues in their community and context. Participants will engage in small group discussions, a community talkback session and explore opportunities to mobilize on these advocacy issues together.

This event is free and open to the public. Registration is required.
