President Obama will meet with Pope Francis next week and we want the President to talk about Protecting God's Creation.
The website, We the People has a new petition, asking President Obama to speak to Pope Francis about Protecting God's Creation.
Faith communities across the U.S. are working to protect our environment. When the President and Pope Francis meet in March, we ask that President Obama give the Pope a photograph of one of our majestic parks or new national monuments as an example of America's proud tradition of conservation leadership, and discuss the sacred obligation of people across faiths to protect God's creation.
"Let us be protectors of creation, protectors of God's plan inscribed in nature, protectors of one another and of the environment," Pope Francis has said.
Conservation is a moral responsibility. President Obama should share a progress report on his climate action plan and efforts to protect America's Great Outdoors, and invite Pope Francis to visit one of America's national parks and monuments.
