Monday, March 26 at noon at the State House.

Join Rev. Margaret Bullit-Jonas as she helps lead: "LET MY PEOPLE GO! Exodus from Fossil Fuels: An Interfaith Witness for Climate Action."  At 12 Noon on Monday, March 26, people from all faith traditions will gather at the State House in downtown Boston to witness to climate injustice in our state and to speak truth to Governor Baker.  After an interfaith ceremony at the State House, the group will move in procession to the Back Bay, where a new pipeline project is slated to power luxury high rises with fracked gas. Supported by prayer, a smaller group will carry out an act of peaceful civil disobedience to keep fossil fuels in the ground. More information may be found on the Facebook events page.
