A group of people in Asheville is fasting and praying to bring attention to climate change.

The group started their fast on Monday morning and will continue until Thanksgiving.

During that time, the group will gather at Vance Monument daily at noon for prayers and talks on climate change. The public is invited to attend these gatherings.

"Gandhi fasted when he became desperate about what happened in India. I feel desperate about climate change," Organizer Dr. Steve Norris said of the reasons behind the fasting and prayers.

Norris said his concerns have been growing as he watches natural disasters worsening.
