Sacred Season for Climate Justice
Updated: Nov 29, 2022
Greenfaith identifies the period between March 17 and May 6, 2022 as a Sacred Season for Climate Justice. It is a season when several religious holidays (Holi, Vaisakhi, Ramadan, Passover, Holy Week, and Easter, Vesak, Naw Ruz, and Ridvan) occur. The Equinox, Earth Day, and World Water Day also occur now.
"The climate crisis means that diverse religious communities must share an urgency message during these sacred days: climate justice now!" ~ Green Faith
"Drawing on our core values and in a spirit of compassion, love, and justice, we are shifting the narrative by calling for an end to new fossil fuel projects and deforestation and a rapid, just transition to a sustainable future. Together we’re showing up on our holiest days to connect climate justice with our religious values."
