“Time is now” climate pilgrimage at Westminster 26 June

Jill Tremellen points out the “Time is now” upcoming interfaith pilgrimage on climate change:

Climate change affects our health, our homes and our beautiful landscapes and things are getting urgent now. It’s time to tell our leaders that enough is enough. This is not the legacy that we want to leave for our grandchildren; this is not the future we want.

As people of faith, we’re determined to speak up for our common home, and on Wednesday 26 June we’ll come together with over 100 like-minded organisations – members of The Climate Coalition – to speak to our politicians and make our voices heard.

We’ll be gathering at Westminster to connect the poor to the powerful by sharing our concerns on climate change and the environment with leaders who can make a difference. Politicians will only increase their ambition if they see that we care. They will act if their constituents tell them that they want change.
