Sisters of Charity Federation Statement on Paris Agreement

The leaders of the Sisters of Charity Federation of North America, representing nearly 4,500 Sisters and Associates, strongly disagree with the decision of President Trump to withdraw from the Paris Agreement regarding climate change. This decision places our world in extreme danger and threatens the life of the planet. We will continue to speak out and act on behalf of those who suffer the effects of climate change, especially persons living in poverty, and to influence legislation that limits greenhouse gas pollution.

Sisters’ involvement in minimizing climate change can be found here. More resources on how the sisters Care for the Earth can be found here. An introduction to our involvement at the United Nations can be found here

    As a Sister of Charity of Cincinnati I have learned and internalized the practice of care for our earth. We are part of Creation rather than its Master. We are interdependent. We live and we die together… making one single part “great.”
