I am Climate Change. I am the Cause. I am the Solution.

Carolyn Woo, President and CEO of Catholic Relief Services and Former Dean of University of Notre Dame, Mendoza College of Business, will speak on the climate crisis. In Laudato Si, Pope Francis links the cry of the earth to the cry of the poor and casts it as expressions of the same underlying dynamics.
