Palms, Matzah, Our Planet, and the White House: A Religious Call to Civil Disobedience

E-mail Print PDF

Climate Change marchAt noon on March 21, religiously and spiritually rooted Americans of all traditions will gather at the White House for a moral act of loving nonviolent civil disobedience.

This action, organized by the Interfaith Moral Action on Climate (IMAC) and strongly supported by The Shalom Center, will make clear to President Obama that his inspired pledge to halt the destruction of the Earth from climate change requires that he take bold and courageous actions, including rejecting the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline.

As religious leaders and individuals who recognize the moral imperative of taking unified, visible action to ensure that our nation’s leaders act responsibly to address climate change, we invite you to join us at the White House at noon on March 21st, either to engage in civil disobedience, or to stand with others in a circle of support for those who do choose to risk arrest.  

Our March 21st action will occur at a critical moment:  Many of our religious communities will be preparing for Passover and Holy Week. (Palm Sunday begins Holy Week on March 24; the first night of Passover is on Monday, March 25), even as our President faces a profound decision that will affect our planet – teetering on the edge of a climate tipping point – and the human communities throughout the Earth  already suffering the effects of the climate crisis and threatened with more and worsening disasters.
