President Obama and Pope Francis are meeting on March 27th. When they meet, we hope that the President raises the importance of caring for Creation.
Please join us and our interfaith colleagues by signing onto a petition on the White House website encouraging that care for Creation be on the agenda. As the Jewish Energy Covenant Campaign declaration states, “enlightened stewardship is not only a religious and moral imperative; it is a strategy for security and survival.”
“My administration will keep working with the [oil and gas] industry to sustain production and job growth while strengthening protection of our air, our water, and our communities,” said President Obama in his 2014 State of the Union address.
“Let us be protectors of creation, protectors of God’s plan inscribed in nature, protectors of one another and of the environment,” Pope Francis has said.
Thank you for your support.
