Mighty Ruler who loves justice,
It was You who established equity. (Psalm 99:4)
The diverse faith traditions that work together through Pennsylvania Interfaith Power & Light have a wide variety of names and conceptions of the Divine. Yet we all agree on this: the Divine calls on us to love justice and establish equity, just as the Psalmist poetically describes God doing.
We have signed a coalition letter opposing a variety of harmful anti-environment, anti-health, and anti-justice riders attached to Senate budget bills because it does the exact opposite— degrading equity instead of establishing it, throwing roadblocks in front of justice instead of pursuing it. Everyone in Pennsylvania deserves a clean, healthy environment, and it is the duty of our state government to ensure that that is what everyone receives. For the sake of this generation and generations to come, we ask citizens and the members of the Pennsylvania House to join with us in opposing these destructive provisions.
