No Faith in Fossil Fuels: A Climate Finance Summit

Event description: 

May 8-11, 2023

The climate crisis is a crisis of greed. Climate destruction is being bankrolled by large corporations and their executives who choose to act against what is right and good, at the expense of our planet’s future.

GreenFaith, a multi-faith movement for climate justice and a founding partner of the PLTS Center for Climate Justice and Faith, will gather people of faith online for a four-day summit May 8 - 11, 2023 to learn how banks and asset managers continue to invest in the fossil fuel industries that are destroying communities in the U.S. and around the world – and then find out how to hold these financial institutions accountable. Together, we can commit to taking the bold steps necessary to effect real change.

This year’s summit will amplify the voices of frontline leaders of Turtle Island (what we now call the United States) and the Global South, whose communities bear the direct brunt of financial decisions made by Chase Bank, Bank of America, Vanguard, Black Rock, and others who invest in harmful oil and gas extraction.

This summit is for you if you’re just making the connections between faith, finance, and climate, if you’re a money manager rooted in just climate values, or if you are part of a community wrestling with these questions.
