Members of Interfaith Power & Light from all corners of the U.S. were part of the historic People’s Climate March in New York City yesterday, September 21st. An estimated 400,000 people marched in an effort to send a strong signal to world leaders in advance of a climate summit this week at the U.N. We are beginning to compile photos, videos and the best coverage of the event. If you have a story or pictures to share, please send them in!

“As I wrote this dispatch sitting at a Times Square Starbucks in view of the march, I looked up and saw Reverend Sally Bingham standing in what looked like a giant wooden Noah’s Ark. Bingham runs Interfaith Power & Light, an organization dedicated to mobilizing religious people across the country to put their faith into action. In an email exchange with me a few weeks ago she stressed: “No major cultural change has happened in this country without the voice of religious leaders. It is a justice issue and something that religious leaders of all denominations are called to address.” (Later in the day, there was a multi-faith service, “Religions for the Earth,” at the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine.)” — Earth Island Journal
