On March 11, from Australia to the Americas, from the Cape of Africa to the Arctic, people of diverse religions, including Interfaith Solidarity Network, are calling for climate justice. In partnership with greenfaith international network, we express our determination to create a world transformed in which humanity in all its diversity has developed a shared reverence for life on Earth, and the era of conquest, extraction, and exploitation has given way to cooperation and community.

Locally, the starting point for ISN is transitioning to 100% clean, renewable energy by 2030. Caring for our common home, restoring the planet, our critical infrastructure and ecosystems requires that our leaders treat the climate crisis as a crisis. In the City of Los Angeles, the State of California, the United States, and the world, we need a bold vision and leadership to act decisively. That means gathering the moral clarity and political will to put people before profits and re-direct investment away from fossil fuels and towards 100% renewable energy and ecological research and development.
