BRYN MAWR— Interfaith Moral Climate Advocacy Workshop
October 14, 2017 @ 9:00 AM - 4:30 PM
PA IPL will hold our 6th Interfaith Moral Climate Advocacy workshop from 9:00-4:30 on Saturday October 14, in Bryn Mawr PA.
We value the richness of interfaith work, and we recognize that it comes with particular challenges — including that some events may be on days with religious conflicts of varying degrees. In 2016 we offered this workshop in Greater Philadelphia on a Sunday afternoon, and we will of course offer a mix of Saturday, Sunday, and weeknight events in the future. We hope you will join us whenever you are able.
We are pleased to welcome Justin Wright to Pennsylvania for two workshops in a single weekend.
Looking for the Pittsburgh workshop instead? It’s here.
Join us to develop clear, faith-soaked messages to bring directly to policymakers to support ambitious, legally-binding targets for carbon dioxide and methane emissions, energy efficiency and a just transition to renewable power.
Hosted by the Environmental Justice group at
Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church
625 Montgomery Ave.
Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania 19010
Workshop Leaders include:
- Justin Wright, Mediator and Negotiation trainer, Active Neutrals
- Rev. Alison Cornish, Executive Director, PA IPL; and Climate Reality Project presenter
People of faith possess the moral authority to be important and credible voices: finding shared values, and awakening awareness and responsibility for bold climate action among elected leaders and non-elected policy makers.
We seek to prepare people of faith who are willing to pro-actively build relationships, and initiate meetings with policymakers, electoral candidates and other religious leaders to lift up the moral dimensions of this crisis and support effective and rapid transition plans for a just, clean energy future in Pennsylvania and the nation.
LUNCH and SNACKS are provided.
Please bring a mug or water bottle for your drinks.
