Reverend Gerald Durley
As the former Dean of Clark Atlanta University and the former director of the Health Promotion Resource Center of the Morehouse School of Medicine, Reverend Gerald Durley seeks to combine the disciplines of faith and science with the lessons learned as a civil rights advocate of the 1960’s. He believes that climate change, global warming, and environmental justice are moral imperatives, which he sees as a contemporary civil rights issue. He has worked with Interfaith Power and Light, the Sierra club, Eco-America, U.S. Climate Action Network, the Environmental Working Group, Green Law, Ambassadors for Clean Air, Moms Clean Air Force, and Water Keeper Inc. Currently he is working to eradicate fluoride from toothpaste and drinking water, testifying before EPA on the clean power plan, and is assisting with Pope Frances’ upcoming visit to the United States.
