features Nathaniel Stinnett, founder and Executive Director of the Environmental Voters Project, and several clergy serving churches in our conference. This webinar was offered at the Spring 2022 Super Saturday.
Learn why identifying and mobilizing non-voting environmentalists into a critical mass is vital, and how you and your congregation can make this happen. In addition to Nathaniel Stinnett’s presentation, clergy from local churches who have promoted the voter challenge in their congregations share their experience of participating in the Creation Care Voter Pledge (CCVP) challenge in 2020.
The Environmental Voter Project estimates that about 15 million people who consider the environment a priority don’t vote. Why is that important? Because political campaigns pay attention to the concerns of voters. If those for whom the environment is a priority don’t vote, then environmental initiatives are not a priority for legislators. This video is a great discussion starter for your Green Team or small group to promote the Creation Care Voter Pledge in your congregation and raise awareness about this important way for all of us to make a difference.
