Antal Helps Lead UCC Contingent at People's Climate March in D.C.
On President Trump's 100th day in office, 200,000 people from all walks of life ringed the White House to send him a message about climate change.
The United Church of Christ, as one of the official co-sponsors of the People's Climate March, was well-represented. Scores of advocates from several UCC Washington D.C.-area churches were joined by dozens of others who converged on the Capitol from congregations across the country.
Massachusetts Conference Minister and President The Rev. Jim Antal was one of the leaders of the UCC group, along with the Rev. Brooks Berndt, UCC Minister for Environmental Justice. Two retired Mass. Conference pastors, the Rev. Andrea Ayvazian and the Rev. Peter Ives, biked down with other cyclists from Massachusetts, joining many other MACUCC participants.
