What We Work On

Actress and activist, Jane Fonda has instituted "Fire Drill Fridays" in Washington, D.C., inspired by Greta Thunberg and the youth climate strikes as well as Reverend Barber’s Moral Mondays.

FAN Introduces a New Campaign to "green" Faith Communities and Dioceses

The Franciscan Action Network (FAN) holds at its core a deep care for creation which stems from our patron, St. Francis of Assisi. FAN sees the interconnectedness of all creation and the common origin of humanity as rooted in God’s loving design for the earth and all people.  We believe in the power of building relationships among diverse people while connecting and sharing knowledge of best-practices.

FAN Builds Coalition working on Just Transition

In the nationwide migration to clean and renewable energy, there is great need to implement a just transition that attends to the social dimensions of economic change and to learn from our collective experience when designing policies around best practices. Just Transition forms a major part of the urgent need to transition away from fossil-fuels without leaving behind the poorest and most vulnerable communities.
