Broome County Council of Churches Collaborates with Citizen Action For Environmental Issues

Posted:
Some organizations in Broome County are trying to heal the world one step at a time -- and they're banning together for one common goal: to better the environment.

The Broome County Council of Churches along with Organizations like Citizen Action met today for a workshop focusing on topics like climate change and fracking.
Organizers say whether you follow a religion or not the fate of our future is important.
Bruce Epperly, Pastor of South Congregational Church said, "People's beliefs in God or their involvement in the society and earth is key to our behavior and so we see the earth in trouble. We believe there's all sorts of environmental changes, climate change, and we need to find ways to responsibly deal with it."

Issac Silberman-Gorn, Environmental Organizer for Citizen Action said, "I think it's a really nice event. I feel like bridges are really being built here which is really cool and I think that there's a really natural tie to religion and environmental issues at large."

A few sponsoring churches included The United Presbyterian Church, North Fenton United Methodist Church and Saint James R-C Church.
The Broome County Council of Churches plans to partner with Citizen Action and other environmental organizations to hold more upcoming workshops.
