When Disaster Strikes: Faith Communities Responding with Equity and Justice

When Disaster Strikes: Faith Communities Responding with Equity and Justice

Faith communities are often on the frontlines of responding to climate-related disasters. More than a spirit of goodwill is required to effectively respond and minister in such critically important times. Because disasters often expose, widen, and exacerbate the gaps of pre-existing disparities, it is essential that communities of faith prioritize and hold fast in their commitments to equity and justice. This free online webinar will equip faith communities with the knowledge and awareness required to act in accordance with our values. Our featured speakers will be:

  • Marcus T. Coleman, Jr., Director of the DHS Center for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, Office of the FEMA Administrator
  • Marcie Roth, Executive Director and CEO for the World Institute on Disability
  • Rev. Fred Meade, Senior Instructor for the National Disaster Interfaiths Network

Even if you cannot make the webinar at its scheduled time, still sign-up, and we will send you a link to a recording of it.

This monthly installment of Creation Justice Webinars is co-hosted by the Rev. Dr. Brooks Berndt who serves as the Minister of Environmental Justice for the United Church of Christ and the Rev. Michael Malcom who serves as the Executive Director for Alabama Interfaith Power & Light and the People’s Justice Council.

Co-sponsors for this event include UCC Disabilities Ministries and UCC Disaster Ministries.
