Collaboration Opportunities Between the AMS and Spiritual/Faith-Based Organizations to Build a Weather-Ready Nation Webinar
Spiritual and faith-based houses of worship are often places of safety, volunteerism, and crisis management during and after high-impact weather events (e.g., hurricanes, tornadoes, wildfires, flash flooding). Hence, spiritual and faith-based communities can be an integral part of building a Weather-Ready Nation. This AMS webinar is part of the Finding Common Ground Among Science, Spirituality, and Environmentalism Series and is co-sponsored by Interfaith Power & Light and Creation Justice Ministries. It brings together perspectives on the roles of spiritual/faith-based communities and organizations in building a Weather-Ready Nation, and identifies opportunities to work together to strengthen community resilience from high-impact weather events.
