Senators need to hear from you! Take action to support the Green Climate Fund
now at the ELCA Action Center!
This week, committee members in the U.S. Senate will make critical funding decisions for international programs—including the Green Climate Fund (GCF).
Lutheran advocates, the ELCA Advocacy Office, and partners throughout the country strongly support the Green Climate Fund because it dedicates a large percentage of resources to serve people already experiencing the impacts of climate change.
Now, Congress is threatening to block this critical funding.
Addressing the harm caused by climate change and its impact
on God's Creation is a moral issue. In addition to
helping people displaced or impacted by climate change, the GCF will help
ensure that nations most heavily affected are equipped to build resilience for future
Last year, a bipartisan group of Senators rose above party divisions
to collectively support the GCF. As people of faith, we pray that our leaders
will again show leadership and embrace our call to be good stewards of the
gifts that God has given all of us.
