A Faithful and Moral Call to Conscience

Emily Sajewski / FCNL

The U.S. Congress is pivotal to national and global efforts to meet the challenge of climate disruption. For Congress to be part of the solution, collaboration between legislators from both political parties is needed. Concerned constituents across the nation, with diverse organizations across civil society, have helped foster a new moral, bipartisan and cooperative spirit in Congress on climate change. We continue to foster this spirit so that Congress can craft meaningful legislative solutions.
