Which groups are behind the petition?

A:

Micah Australia is coordinating the petition as a tool to empower Christians (and other concerned citizens) to take action on climate change.

To make the petition as powerful as possible, we also want it be something that any individual or group from any faith background (or no faith at all) can sign and also gather signatures for.

For that reason, while it’s a petition launched and coordinated by Christians, it’s not a petition for Christians alone. For the Community Climate Petition to be influential, it will need to demonstrate wide, deep and diverse support in each of our electorates.

As well as working with Micah member organisations, we are pleased to work together on this petition with many passionate, committed individuals and organisations who are showing leadership on climate justice:

A Just Cause

Australian Religious Response to Climate Change

Caritas Australia

Catholic Earth Care

Common Grace

Conference of Leaders of Religious Institutes (NSW)

Edmund Rice Centre

Faith Ecology Network

Franciscan Friars

Justice & International Mission Unit

TEAR Australia

Uniting Earth Web

Uniting World

It's an ever-expanding list, so check back here again soon to see who else is on board...
