Capital Region Interfaith Creation Care Coalition

CRICCC and the Results of the 2020 Election

Our nation has spoken about the direction they wish to take in the years ahead. The work begins anew to heal and to work together to undo the damage we have done to Creation. In this pandemic year, we are reminded that everything is connected. We pray for a smooth transition to the new Administration with renewed hope that we can move quickly to address the environmental issues that have been sorely neglected and urgently require remediation.

Who We Are

The Capital Region Interfaith Creation Care Coalition was formed in the spring of 2018 to bring together faith groups in the Capital Region of New York State. We currently have representatives of 24 different faith communities on our mailing list with 22 of those communities regularly active in our meetings.

The Coalition has 4 Committees:

· Renewable Energy

· Toward Zero Waste

· Communications and Education

· Advocacy

Our Mission Statement

We make Care of Creation a central moral priority by working in solidarity to mitigate the climate emergency and to preserve and restore natural resources and biodiversity for present and future generations. We accomplish this in accordance with our values by educating ourselves and our faith communities, advocating for the environment, reducing our carbon and waste footprints, and adopting behaviors that will ensure the sustainability of life in all its diversity on Earth.

Join Us

We welcome more faith groups in the region to become involved with our efforts. Our next meeting is Monday, January 18th at 7 PM on Zoom. Write to our Chair for details on how to join the meeting.
