Green the Church Summit
Our Annual Green The Church Summit is the largest gathering of the Black Church on issues of environmental justice, climate change, and sustainable food networks. The Summit helps to empower church leadership and lay people to develop practical solutions to economic and environmental issues in the Black community.
Our Past Summits have taken place in Baltimore, Chicago, Charlotte and North California. We have had the honor of bringing distinguished individuals in the faith community to the summits including Dr. Fredrick Haynes III, Rev. Freddy Hames, Rev. Mariama White – Hammond.
During the Summits we have partnered with various environmental organizations such as The Nature Conservancy, Sierra Club, Interfaith Power & Light and Green for All. With their assistance we have connected with communities about the environmental injustices that they face, led groundbreaking lectures and open forums on the issues, as well as provided resources for the communities to continue their fight for environmental justice.
