PCUSA Walk for a Fossil Free World

Friday, June 1, 2018 to Saturday, June 16, 2018

PCUSA Walk for a Fossil Free World

It’s time for the denomination to put its money where it’s faith is. The PC(USA) must join the divestment movement that has already taken trillions of dollars out of the fossil fuel industry.

By doing so, the denomination will no longer  profit from an industry that has contributed to climate change. Hurricanes in Puerto Rico, drought in California, rising sea levels along the global coasts — natural disasters exacerbated by climate change which affect Presbyterians and all creation.

Our faith calls us to love God, creation, and neighbor with our whole selves, and June 1-16, 2018 we will love creation with each step we take. Our walk will take us from Louisville, Kentucky (the headquarters of the Presbyterian Church (USA)) to St. Louis, Missouri, in time for the PC(USA)’s 223rd General Assembly.

The walk will ask members and friends of the PCUSA to put their bodies on a journey for environmental justice– and to call on the PCUSA divest from the fossil fuel industry. We’re taking the dramatic action of walking 260 miles because the effects of climate change on our world and its people are dramatic.
