CREATION JUSTICE WEBINAR: Join with others with an interest in spiritual approaches to environmental justice on June 13, 1:00pm Eastern Time in Centre Congregational Church’s chapel as the national webinar broadcasts live. Hosted by the Mission and Service Board of Centre Church.
This month’s Creation Justice Webinar features Nick Estes who recently published the acclaimed book “Our History Is the Future: Standing Rock Versus the Dakota Access Pipeline, and the Long Tradition of Indigenous Resistance.” Naomi Klein has praised the book for its transformative stories from the front lines while observing, “Embedded in the centuries-long struggle for Indigenous liberation resides our best hope for a safe and just future for everyone on this planet.” In this webinar, Estes will provide critical historical knowledge and perspective for people of faith and conscience seeking environmental justice. Estes is currently an Assistant Professor in the American Studies Department at the University of New Mexico and was recently a fellow at Harvard University. This webinar is co-hosted by the Rev. Dr. Brooks Berndt of the United Church of Christ Environmental Justice Ministry and the Rev. Michael Malcom of Alabama Interfaith Power & Light and the People’s Justice Council.
