GTC empowers people of all faiths to be leaders in caring for the Earth, providing resources to educate, connect, and advocate for healthier communities.

GTC is hosting its 6th annual Summit in St. Louis on October 4th and 5th at the New Northside Missionary Baptist Church. The Summit will feature a keynote by Dr. Mustafa Santiago Ali, a major national environmental justice leader and strategist.
