MLK Day in Dallas - Religion and Climate: Multifaith Perspectives

Submitted by Sam Brannon on Tue, 2014-12-09 13:22

Dallas Interfaith Power and Light invites you to a discussion about Religion and Climate on Monday evening, January 19th! Leaders from Buddhist, Muslim, and Jain traditions will offer their perspectives on climate change, and we'll have time for questions and conversation. Together, we'll explore how action on climate is as an act of faith--and here, on Martin Luther King Day, we'll focus on how climate change impacts people and is connected to other forms of justice work, including racial justice.

January 19, 2015 - Martin Luther King Jr., Day - 7:00-8:30 p.m.
The Dallas Bahá’í Center - 9400 Plano Rd., Dallas, TX 75238
