JOIN US ENDORSING THE AHIMSAK ECO-VEGAN COMMITTEE'S JAIN DECLARATION ON THE CLIMATE CRISIS

We Jains, staunch believers in ahimsa, are watching as weather-related disasters after disaster affects our fellow humans, animals, and all jivas on our planet. As a recent example, over a billion animals have died due to wildfires in Australia. Now more than ever Jains need to work to avert even worse hinsa due to Climate Change.

You may have heard that JAINA's Ahimsak Eco-Vegan Committee drafted a new ‘Jain Declaration on the Climate Crisis’ which was endorsed by the JAINA Executive Committee last November. Please review the declaration which is on the JAINA website.

Join JAINA to register your endorsement by filling this Jain Declaration Comment Form. It also gives you options of whether to list your comments publicly or not; please do respond. We hope to get significant show support from our community.

For more information, write to Dr. Jina Shah at jina.shah@gmail.com and Mr. Sudhanshu Jain at suds@sudsjain.com.
