Resources on “Sound the Alarm for Climate Action” Bell-Ringing

Church bells have a long history of calling communities together to respond to a crisis.  In the Southern New England conference there are several clusters of congregations gathering on the 11th of every month to ring their bells and sound the alarm that we are approaching the “11th hour” of the growing climate crisis.

Sound the Alarm for Climate Action is also an excellent opportunity to invite participants and passersby to take the Creation Care Voter Pledge and increase the number of voters concerned about the environment.  If your congregation decides to make a commitment to ring your bell on the 11th of each month, we want to hear about your ideas and experience. Contact Karen Methot and share your story so that we can get the word out and inspire others!

Responding to election-related violence:

  • Election Chaplaincy: All over the country, people of faith are rising up to defend democracy by being a vigilant spiritual witness at the polls. This training will cover what the role of the precinct chaplain is, how we plan to show up as a faith witness on election day, strategies for monitoring precincts, best practices for voter care & comfort, and tools for de-escalation and crisis management at the polls. Led by Billy M. Honor, Director of Faith Organizing for the New Georgia Project.
