We invite you to join your voice with thousands of individuals signing this climate action petition across the U.S. Catholic community as a faith-filled appeal to President Biden and the U.S. Congress, to work beyond partisanship and create climate solutions to care for present and future generations and our common home. (This Catholic petition is in solidarity with Catholic institutions that are signing this Catholic letter.)
We will deliver these united messages during the Season of Creation, seeking and praying that they will move the needle of the nation’s moral compass toward the bold and ambitious solutions the nation and world need to address the climate crisis.
Sign the Catholic PETITION for U.S. climate action, as an individual below.
Dear President Biden and Members of the U.S. Congress,
As U.S. Catholics united in the protection of children, generations to come, and our common home, we urgently appeal to you, to come together and lead our nation and world toward a sustainable and thriving future.

We call for actions that:
During these urgent times, we ask, as Pope Francis has, “What kind of world do we want to leave to those who come after us, to children who are now growing up?” (LS 160). We ask you and pray to God that you work together, for at its core, climate change is not about economic theory or political platforms, but about the future of God’s creation and the one human family.
