Logo for the 2019 mass lobby - The Time is Now

If you put one date in your diary this year make it Wednesday 26 June, and join CAFOD at an unforgettable event in London. It’s time to confront this climate and environmental crisis and tell our leaders that Britain should no longer contribute to the destruction of our common home.

Why a mass lobby?

Climate change affects our health, our homes and our beautiful landscapes and things are getting urgent now. It’s time to tell our leaders that enough is enough. This is not the legacy that we want to leave for our grandchildren; this is not the future we want.   

As people of faith, we’re determined to speak up for our common home, and on Wednesday 26 June we’ll come together with over 100 like-minded organisations – members of The Climate Coalition – to speak to our politicians and make our voices heard.

Download our flyer to promote the lobby

We’ll be gathering at Westminster to connect the poor to the powerful by sharing our concerns on climate change and the environment with leaders who can make a difference. Politicians will only increase their ambition if they see that we care. They will act if their constituents tell them that they want change.

So join us outside Parliament in London on 26 JuneMeet others from your constituency and have real conversations with your MPs - face to face - to play your part in responding to our beautiful, common home.

We need as many people as possible to turn up to meet their MPs. Together we will create a noise outside Parliament that can’t be ignored. Together we can turn the tide.
