PITTSBURGH— Interfaith Moral Climate Advocacy workshop
October 15, 2017 @ 1:00 PM - 7:30 PM
PA IPL will hold our 7th Interfaith Moral Climate Advocacy workshop from 1:00-7:30 on Sunday October 15th in Pittsburgh PA.
We value the richness of interfaith work, with all its challenges. We recognize that events will take place on days which conflict with some religious practices. We will continue to strive to 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 Bryn Mawr 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.
Workshop Leaders include:
- Justin Wright, Mediator and Negotiation trainer, Active Neutrals
- Larry J. Schweiger, President and CEO, PennFuture
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.
SUPPER and SNACKS are provided.
Please bring a mug or water bottle for your drinks.
