The Forum explores these contributions to civic life while honoring America’s traditions of religious liberty and pluralism.

The National Council of Churches of Christ (NCCC), a federation of 34 Protestant, Eastern Orthodox, and African-American denominations, which participates in the Partnership through its Eco-Justice Program.

The Evangelical Environmental Network (EEN), a coalition of 23 evangelical Christian programs and educational institutions. Rather than being guardedly committed to a strained coalition, member groups have found in the Partnership a way to be themselves, together. While the Partnership has identified common messages and priorities, each faith group has found its own points of entry and prepares and distributes its own materials. The secretariat, based in Amherst, Massachusetts, provides the Partnership groups with: Assistance in strategic planning and visioning, Program development, Communications, Public information, Liaison to other societal sectors, Fund-raising, and Technical support to local initiatives.
