On both sides of the Atlantic, campaigns for climate justice tend to be dominated by more privileged voices. This reinforces the perception the issue is an "elite preoccupation" — a perception often cultivated by those opposed to the changes needed to address the climate crisis. In this lecture, the Rev. Angus Ritchie, director of the Centre for Theology and Community and a priest in the Anglican Diocese of London, discusses how community organizing can help build a broader-based and more powerful movement for climate action. For over 20 years, Fr. Ritchie has worked in parishes involved in community organizing in some of England’s poorest neighborhoods. His book, Inclusive Populism, earned praise from Pope Francis for their shared vision of popularism.

Cosponsored by the Office of the President and the McFarland Center, with a special introduction by President Rougeau.
