Description:
Web site of Fossil Free PCUSA (FFPCUSA), a project of Presbyterian Peace Fellowship (PPF). Members and friends of the Presbyterian Church (USA) have responded to the call to care for God\u2019s good creation since 2012 by asking the denomination to divest from the fossil fuel industry. In 2014, the leadership of FFPCUSA and representatives from 12 concurring presbyteries traveled to General Assembly in Detroit to present an overture to divest. This overture was sent to the Mission Responsibility Through Investment (MRTI) committee for further study. In 2016, the support for an updated overture grew to 31 concurring presbyteries. The overture was passed in committee at the 2016 General Assembly but eventually was again sent to MRTI. In 2017, FFPCUSA became an official project of PPF, acknowledging that the work of ecojustice is entangled with peacemaking. The work continues to grow, in collaboration with people across the denomination, but focused on a commitment to divest from the industry that has contributed the most to climate change.

Web site of the Presbyterian Peace Fellowship, a wide network of peacemakers who engage issues of both national and international import. The Presbyterian Peace Fellowship started in the 1940s as a group that provided support to Conscientious Objectors to World War II, a war in which objection was quite unpopular.

They have helped lead the PC(USA) to take bold stances in the face of violence.
