In 2017, Fossil Free PCUSA and Presbyterian Peace Fellowship entered into a new relationship with FFPCUSA as a project of PPF. Read the announcement from September 29, 2017. In this partnership, both Fossil Free PCUSA and Presbyterian Peace Fellowship reaffirm a commitment to nonviolence, caring for creation, and working against racism in the Church and the world.
PPF offers FFPCUSA support in nonviolent direct action, and FFPCUSA brings a large body of work for environmental justice to PPF—a matter that is closely related to many of the other justice and violence-prevention issues PPF addresses.
Fossil Free PC(USA) is a grassroots organization working within the PCUSA since 2012 to challenge the denomination to respond faithfully to climate change. They have led a growing campaign to divest PCUSA funds from oil, gas and coal companies as one step toward a faithful and sustainable future. In 2014, 12 presbyteries concurred with the overture to divest from fossil fuels; in 2016, 31 presbyteries concurred. Besides working on an overture to GA in 2018, they have been encouraging synods, presbyteries, congregations and individuals to divest their own holdings in fossil fuels.
