A Faithful and Moral Call to Conscience

Ask Your Representative to Act on Climate Change

Write a Letter-to-the-Editor 

The U.S. Congress is pivotal to national and global efforts to meet the challenge of climate disruption. However, for Congress to be part of the solution, leadership is needed from members of both political parties. FCNL believes that our moral obligation to address climate change and protect vulnerable communities transcends partisanship. By changing the dialogue in Congress on climate change, we are paving the way for meaningful legislative solutions to gain bipartisan support and become law.

  1. Background Carbon Pricing as a Solution to Climate Change 

    FCNL believes that carbon pricing is one of many essential tools that Congress should use to address climate change and shift towards a clean energy economy. While we have not endorsed any particular bill at this time, we are supportive overall of the efforts from both parties to advance carbon pricing legislation. We hope that the below resources will help our network advocate for just climate policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and promote equitable communities.
