This Faiths 4 Climate Justice event is being organized by the “inter-faith break-out group” at the July 22nd meeting of the Environmental Crisis Planning Forum co-hosted by Basilica Hudson, the Columbia Land Conservancy, and the Buddhist Action Coalition.
Earlier in the day of Sunday, October 17, faith communities will host events at their places of worship or assembly to unfurl banners calling for climate action, ring bells, sound gongs and chimes, call the Azan, and more.
Then, in the afternoon of Sunday, October 17, those of us within the Upper Hudson Valley and surrounding hills will assemble along the Mahicantuck (Hudson River) to raise our collective voice as we walk across the Rip Van Winkle Bridge.
From Maia Boswell-Penc, Unity of Albany’s EarthCare coordinator:
Sunday, 17 October 2021 from 3:30 PM to 5:00 PM
At 3:00, begin with parking on either the Hudson (east) end or the Catskill (west) end of the bridge.
Please consider car-pooling as parking at the bridge is limited. There is more parking on the Catskill side than on the Hudson side.
