Big thanks to everyone who was able to join us for Answering Earth's Call: An Interfaith Forum on Climate Justice. We hope you were as inspired as we were by the uplifting speakers, choirs, and fellow participants. The event exceeded our expectations, packing the Great Hall at St. Paul's Cathedral with over 300 participants and with excellent press coverage received for the forum and the associated press conference.
SanDiego350 was part of an amazing coalition of over 30 organizations, including faith, environmental, labor, and social justice organizations, that planned and supported this event. We are grateful for this wonderful partnership.
This forum is just the beginning of a dialogue about climate justice in San Diego and we look forward to working with our coalition partners to preserve the spirit of this forum as we work together to advance solutions to climate change and social and economic justice in San Diego. (If you would like to be a part of this ongoing dialogue, please email us.)
While we included a couple of photos below, there are lots more, a photoblog of the event, and complete video footage.
