Alison headshotThe papal encyclical released earlier this summer offers a unique opportunity to amplify and elevate voices of those responding to climate change.  And not a minute too soon …   In this interactive talk, Rev. Cornish will cover the main points of the encyclical that resonate with people of all faiths.

The Reverend Alison Cornish recently joined PA IPL as Executive Director.  She is a Unitarian Universalist minister, and comes to PA IPL with a background in parish ministry, nonprofit management, multifaith work, advocacy for the marginalized — and a passion and commitment to care about, and for, the Earth, which has shaped her theology and activism over the past two decades.
