Fasting for Climate Justice – Fast, Pray, Act:
 
At noon, join the Kenosha 4: Rev. Jonathan Barker of Grace Lutheran Church in Kenosha, Joe Cardinali, former Kenosha County Board Supervisor, Justin Blake, founder of Black Underground Recycling speaking from his Muslim faith, and County Supervisor Andy Berg, who is also the Executive Director of Garden of Eatin-Kenosha, retired Army Veteran.  How are they progressing on their 22-day fast for climate justice from Friday, March 5 to March 27? Get ideas of how you can participate in a partial fast and prayers for God’s creation. The goal of this prayerful fast is to focus public attention and badly needed action on the climate emergencies’ harm to lives, jobs, and health of Wisconsin citizens, and to our sacred, life-sustaining natural environment. The Kenosha 4 ask that you consider joining this statewide climate justice fast in any way that you are able: a daily meditative prayer, fasting, and prayer for a single meal, or fasting for one or more of the 22 days. Your thoughts, your prayers, and your participation are gratefully welcomed. You choose the way. And then stay tuned for action opportunities.

Sponsors:  This event is being organized by the Wisconsin Faith Coalition for Climate Justice made up of the Lutheran Office for Public Policy in Wisconsin, Wisconsin Council of Churches, Wisconsin Faith Voices for Justice, and Wisconsin Interfaith Power & Light
