DC’s Moral Action on Climate Justice Rally

By Bailey Edelstein

Washington, DC– Hundreds of people gathered near the Capitol building on Sep. 24 for the Moral Action for Climate Justice rally during Pope Francis’ visit to DC. The event was advertised as a faith-based gathering, but attracted a spectrum of Earth-lovers with both religious and non-religious motivations. The Pope addressed a joint-session of Congress that morning, identifying that human activity is a driving cause in the degradation of our environment. Spectators heard from nationally recognized Hip Hop activist Reverend Lennox Yearwood Jr. who delivered a sermon about his stance on climate change and musical talent Moby and Natasha Bedingfield.
