Annual climate justice campaign by Citizens for Public Justice runs from Feb. 26 to Apr. 9. This is a faith-in-action campaign to encourage Canadian action for climate justice. Give it up for the Earth! raises awareness about climate change and mobilizes people across Canada to reduce household greenhouse gas emissions and collect signatures as a demonstration of support for increased federal government action.
Churches, schools, religious orders, and ecumenical groups across Canada are set to Give it up for the Earth! this Lent. Will you pledge to give it up for the Earth? https://cpj.ca/pledge-give-it-earth
