Working in Our Communities to Ensure a Sustainable Planet Earth for Future Generations
"All ethics ... rest upon a single premise: that the individual is a member of a community of interdependent parts ... The land ethic simply enlarges the boundaries of the community to include soils, waters, plants and animals, or collectively, the land."
~ Aldo Leopold
Our vision is a world where human activities foster climate justice and ecosystems sustainability
Our diverse spiritual traditions call us to be agents for climate justice. We address the existential threat of climate change through environmental education and action within our religious communities, advocacy for climate legislation, and collaborative actions with other environmental organizations.
From our diverse faith and intellectual foundations, the member congregations of Marin Interfaith Climate Action share a commitment to protecting and sustaining the Earth and the totality of life on the Earth. We affirm:
Nature is sacred.
We humans are part of an interconnected and interdependent web of life, our Earth, upon which our existence depends.
Protecting and respecting the Earth and all who inhabit it are spiritual and moral imperatives.
Humanity has rights to the yearly harvest, but not rights to a harvest that depletes its established productive capacity.
We value science as a means to understand the foundational causes of the climate crisis and to provide evidence-based validation for the corrective actions we choose to take.
We commit to promote policies and practices that foster restoration and remediation.
Earth's life-supporting ecosystems are being dangerously stressed and damaged by our daily practices, particularly by our use of fossil fuels (coal, oil, natural gas) that emit global warming emissions. Join MICA and learn how to switch to practices in our shopping and food choices, waste management, water use, transportation, and home energy use that support a sustainable life-supporting environment on planet Earth.
We invite you to join us. All individuals, faith communities, and groups that seek Earth sustainability and climate justice. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
