People of faith possess the moral authority to be important and credible voices, 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 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.
