Climate justice recognizes the importance of caring for all God’s creation together with caring for people who experience the most harm from climate change. May we commit to being more faithful in caring for the gift of creation and one another.

This initiative is a partnership between Mennonite Church USA (MC USA), Mennonite Creation Care Network and the Center for Sustainable Climate Solutions.


Engage with Climate Justice resources.

Watch the recording of our webinar, Caring for climate: Beyond denial and despair.

Many people are still in denial about the climate crisis and still others are in despair. How can congregational ministries help us navigate the myriad emotions we experience related to climate, moving us from inaction to hopeful engagement? Doug Kaufman and other Mennonite climate leaders Dr. Christy Miller Hesed, Dr. Sibonokuhle Ncube and Ken Pitts, discuss how people become involved in climate action, including why we are involved and how to help others get involved.

The webinar took place Thurs., Feb. 27. Meet and watch the panelists here.
