  • The Story
    Behind This Photo

    TO ME, THIS PHOTO MEANS:

    I'm participating in the 50 States United for Healthy Air Event because as a person of faith I believe that ALL of God's creatures (nonhuman as well as human) deserve clean air. My bunny companion, Wilma, represents all the nonhuman animals.

Massachusetts:
Ambassador  Maura Flynn RN.

Ambassador Tiana   Ocasio.
Ambassador Susan E.  Harley.
Ambassador Denise   Abdul-Rahman.
Ambassador Richard   Hibbert.

In the First Person:

People of all faiths and people of no particular faith are calling for our senators to do the right thing—to work toward clean air for all of us and for future generations.

My faith requires that I speak out on behalf of the voiceless—God's earth and God's nonhuman creatures. I teach in the Religion Department at Wheaton College in Norton, Massachusetts. I am inspired by all my students, as wells as my nephews, and my goddaughter. I want them to have a healthy planet and healthy air to breathe. The only way to assure this is for Congress, the President and the EPA, to stop giving subsidies to Big Oil and Big Coal. Instead, give subsidies to renewable clean energies and producers of local food.

People of all faiths and people of no particular faith are calling for our senators to do the right thing—to work toward clean air for all of us and for future generations.
