A Bit of Background

2020/21 Virtual Summit Series

The RAICA Summit has gone Virtual, because now more than ever it is important to keep the work of reversing climate change and strengthening our faith communities going. 

Beginning September 2020, each month we we will alternate between a short prerecorded video by a spiritual leader in our community and a workshop style webinar to share best practices and answer questions on a particular action that you or your faith community can take to reverse climate change.
