Petition Promoters

Petition Promoters commit to gathering petition signatures for the Healthy People, Healthy Planet petition. This petition is a tool to show world leaders how many Catholics worldwide want bold action to care for creation. It is also a way to connect with others in your community, in order to build an ongoing team of people who are ready to do local creation care work – even beyond these two UN meetings.

Signatures can be gathered in the way that works best for you. Whether it’s text outreach to friends, emailing your parish, Facebook outreach, online events, or in-person signature gatherings – however you choose to do outreach is great. Once you sign up, we will share a toolkit with resources for how to gather petitions.
