Hundreds Attend Vigil Organized by Edmonton’s Climate Justice Group

Published in The Banner on September 30, 2019

Across Canada, people of faith are increasingly speaking up about the urgent need for climate action. Gabrielle Gelderman, 28, a member of Fellowship Christian Reformed Church in Edmonton, Alta., is one of them.

Serving Citizens for Public Justice as its Edmonton chapter organizer since May, Gelderman initially invited others from the church to a meeting. That grew into a faith and climate justice group which caught the interest of people from other Christian Reformed congregations in the city — BethelAvenueCentrepointe Community, and Maranatha.
