I meant to post this earlier. I apologize for the delay.

I am so heartened by all of the amazing work we are doing- and I’m excited to write you with this opportunity for a truly movement building moment! This September, hundreds of thousands from across the country will stand together to bend the course of history. The number of people and groups who are coming together to make this possible is inspiring. And together we’ll walk, peacefully, through the streets of New York as thousands of teachers, farmers, parents, union members, friends, health professionals, activists, children, all part of the human community that calls this planet home. You are invited to the People’s Climate March <https://www.eventjoy.com/e/peoples-climate-march-274884> MNIPL is planning a faith delegation that will travel east to New York City, telling our stories, and visiting faith communities to hear their stories along the way. We will depart Minneapolis on Friday September 19th, and travel to Indiana where we will have a campfire, community, and time for music. On Saturday we’ll travel to Lancaster, PA where we will meet with members of the community and participate in a collective Climate Conversation. Sunday morning we’ll have interfaith worshipservice ON THE BUS, and arrive in Manhattan ready to march. The bus will depart Manhattan Sunday evening, and we’ll travel through the night, arriving back in Twin Cities on Monday afternoon. Together we’ll bring the call for regional, national, and international action on climate change to the People’s Climate March. We need you there. Will you come bring your Spark? <https://www.eventjoy.com/e/peoples-climate-march-274884> Organize a Delegation From Your Faith Community! Here’s how you can help make this moment count: First, buy your ticket here <https://www.eventjoy.com/e/peoples-climate-march-274884>. Then, spread the word! Download this poster <http://mnipl.org/uploads/Climate-March-RGB-WEB2.pdf> to share with friends, family, and in your congregation. You can direct folks to the ticketing page <https://www.eventjoy.com/e/peoples-climate-march-274884>, and questions to claire [at] mnipl.org. But really, the most effective thing is to have one on one conversations about why its important to you to attend the People’s Climate March, and invite others to join you. This will be a great way to elevate the conversation around climate change and invite folks to join us who perhaps haven’t been involved in the past. Ask your pastor/faith leaderto make a brief announcement during the service about the People’s Climate March, and table after the service with more information and an opportunity for people to sign the interest form. Invite MNIPL to facilitate a dialogue in your congregation about climate change and the importance of the People’s Climate March.

Upcoming Events Potluck for travel to the PCM August 14th 6-8pm at Lynnhurst Park in Minneapolis: Join us for a community gathering to raise money to relieve travel costs. Enjoy an outdoor potluck, and invite friends and community members to support your trip! Organizing Meeting Join us on September 3rd 6-8pm: at Gandhi Mahal for delicious Indian food, music from Scott Marrs, and a time to get to know one another before embarking on our journey to NYC. We’ll go over logistics, and plan activities during our travel like music on the bus, storytelling, food, gifts for our homestays hosts, a community art project, and more! We are so thankful for all that you do, all that you are, and the many gifts, passions, and skills that you bring to this beautiful interfaith climate movement. I hope that you will be able to join me and the growing community who will be gathering in New York to call for the world we know is possible. Along the way we’ll be able to hear the stories of climate activists across the country. It will be an enlivening experience and I would love to be able to share it with you!
