United in Action: “Turning Faith Into Action for a Greener World”

November 15, 2022


Who We Are

Faith has the potential to play a powerful part in our fight against the climate crisis. Whether it be fostering a sense of community, building our connection with the earth, or reminding us of a greater purpose, faith centers can reorient us, serving as a site for radical change and compassion.

On this episode of United in Action, Host Steve Chiu travels to Boston to speak with Dr. Marium Husain about the power inherent in faith groups and how it might be used to make a big difference. They’ll explore how we might mend our relationship with the natural realm and find humanity in one another to create not only the world we need, but the world we want

Join us for our episode on Tuesday, November 22nd, as we dig deep with Dr. Marium Husain, President of IMANA.
