A Faithful and Moral Call to Conscience

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.

Background Question for Candidates: International Climate Action 

Climate change is a global problem that needs global solutions. President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement points the U.S. in the wrong direction, endangering both our negotiating power with other nations and the well-being of communities around the world.

PREPARE Passes, Persistence Pays Off 

In 2015, I was a junior in college, studying environmental biology. I was keenly aware of the issue of climate change and trying to figure out what I could do to get involved as a college student.
