Grace Forum Online with Bob Inglis: The EcoRight and the Environmental Left

February 2, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Can the threat of climate change bring together the political left and right in the United States? In the partisan politics that have become so divisive in our country, climate change is usually seen as a progressive issue, disregarded by conservatives. For those who believe that climate change is a very real threat — to the world’s environment, security, economy, agriculture and people — they know that the world must come together quickly to enact durable solutions before it is too late. Yet how can we build consensus for action globally, when in our own country we remain divided?  

Tonight’s guest, Bob Inglis, is a former member of Congress, and the founder of republicEn.org, a grass roots organization whose mission is to educate, recruit and organize conservative voices for action on climate change.  

Each year the cathedral chooses a theme for inspiration and reflection, and in 2022 our theme is connection. Join Dean Malcolm Clemens Young for a conversation with Inglis about bringing the right and left in the United States together, and leading the world to solutions on climate change.
