Only One Earth: An Interfaith Call to Climate Action

October 16 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Come listen to civil and environmental rights leader, Rev. Dr. Gerald Durley, address the intersections between faith, climate and justice.

Faith communities play a crucial role in the work for ecological justice. On October 16th 2022, civil and environmental rights leader, the Rev. Dr. Gerald Durley will deliver a keynote address about the intersections between faith, climate, and justice at Science Gallery Atlanta. Rev. Durley is the chair of the National Interfaith Power and Light board and the former Pastor of the historic Providence Missionary Baptist Church of Atlanta, where he served for nearly 25 years. In 2011, Rev. Durley was inducted into the International Civil Rights Walk of Fame for his contributions during the civil rights movement in the 1960s. Rev. Durley’s address will be followed by a panel discussion composed of local interfaith leaders and scientists from Emory University, who will respond to Rev. Durley and explore how concerned citizens of faith can mobilize their communities to address the environmental realities and policies requiring our action in the state of Georgia.

Co-hosted by Climate Talks at Emory University, Science Gallery Atlanta, Georgia Interfaith Power and Light, Interfaith Atlanta, Interfaith Children’s Movement, The Catholic Archdiocese of Atlanta, The Episcopal Church of the Epiphany, The Ismaili Council for the Southeastern USA, and The Temple
