Awakening a social giant in the effort to fight climate change

The Reverend Dr. Ambrose Carroll, Sr, is the founder of Green The Church a national effort designed to tap into the power and purpose of the African  American faith community, to explore and expand the role of churches as centers for environmental and economic resilience.  

Green The Church engages congregations in the fight against climate change, and helps churches serve as centers of resilience that ensure their communities survive—and thrive—in the face of disasters.

Dr. Carroll was recently interviewed by the University of California's Carbon Neutrality Initiative. Here his remarks here.
