Fossil Free Faith

FFF Maisaloon Al-AshkarFFF Janelle Delorme

Faith & the Common Good is proud to be a founding member of Fossil Free Faith (FFF), an interfaith Canadian fossil fuel divestment network.

Upcoming Events

Saturday, April 30 — Spiritually Rooted Direct Action Training
2:00 pm – 5:00 pm at Canadian Memorial United Church in Vancouver

This May the global climate movement will be rallying at critical climate justice sites, in massive peaceful resistance designed to slow the extraction of fossil fuels. In Western Canada, this site is Burnaby Mountain and the Kinder Morgan pipeline.

In preparation, Fossil Free Faith is hosting a non-violent direct-action training specifically for people of faith. The goal is for folks to get a sense of what participating in civil disobedience might look like, the many roles for supporting peaceful acts of resistance (many of which are support roles that don’t involve risking arrest), and hold space to ask questions and do some moral/theological discernment around the risks that the climate crisis presents.

RSVP to Laurel Dystra at: salalandcedar@vancouver.anglican.ca.
