ENCOUNTER: A NATIONAL CATHOLIC CAMPAIGN FOR CLIMATE SOLUTIONS
Encounter for Our Common Home is an ongoing national campaign that brings together Catholics across the country to urge our U.S. Senators to enact authentic solutions to the climate crisis. These virtual and in-person encounters with our Senators come from the foundation of our Catholic faith and in accordance with the Laudato Si’ Action Platform.
We are a coalition of U.S. Catholic groups working together for our Common Home. Join Catholic Climate Covenant and our U.S. Catholic partners for this national campaign for climate solutions. This is an advocacy effort in concert with the Vatican’s Laudato Si’ Action Platform (LSAP) activities in the United States.
Sponsors include Caritas North America, Catholic Association of Diocesan Ecumenical and Interreligious Officers, Catholic Climate Covenant, Catholic Health Association of the United States, Franciscan Action Network, Laudato Si' Movement, Leadership Conference of Women Religious, Maryknoll Office for Global Concerns, National Catholic Education Association, Sisters of Mercy of the Americas, and Religious of the Sacred Heart (RSCJ.)
Thank you for being part of this encounter!
Current Encounter Campaign Action:
We are currently advocating on the FOREST ACT. Download this two-pager on the Forest Act (Fostering Overseas Rule of Law and Environmentally Sound Trade) that summarizes the legislation and serves as an excellent "leave-behind" document for legislative visits.)
NOTE: Phase 1 was held in 2022 but future events will be planned and the campaign is just getting started! When you join the campaign, you will be the first to hear of campaign events. View past Encounter campaign events/actions here.
