Delegation Purpose and General Itinerary
Fossil Free PCUSA and the Presbyterian Peace Fellowship have been invited to Puerto Rico by the Rev. José González-Colón as a follow-up to the Fossil Free PCUSA 'Walk for a Fossil Free World,' and you're invited to apply to join the delegation.

Delegation members can expect to experience a widening perspective of climate justice and fossil fuel divestment in a range of intergenerational, secular, and sacred contexts through teach-ins, site visits, and daily worship. This delegation aims to teach its members how to integrate the human ecologies of Puerto Rican/ U.S. societal institutions with the ecology of Puerto Rican land.

Our co-planners in San Juan, Rev. González-Colón and Michelle Muñiz-Vega, are coordinating teach-ins with a range of activists: an environmental lawyer, a local geologist, a food system writer who is widely revered across the Caribbean, and a radical environmental activist group local to San Juan.

Site visits will include visiting an agroecological farm, enjoying El Yunque National Forest and praying over it (in addition to other sites of environmental degradation), spending time in different Presbyterian churches on the island, and visiting ‘el instituto de permacultura.’

Worship and daily life will follow the prayer disciplines of Fossil Free PCUSA’s walk to the Presbyterian Church USA’s 223rd General Assembly while offering a safe space for the pastors and Presbyterians of San Juan to talk about local environmental issues.

As Rev. González-Colón, a participant and teacher during Fossil Free PCUSA’s walk to GA223 has expressed so perfectly and succinctly, “We are still marching.”

Thank you for your interest and we look forward to reading your application!
