Climate Justice in Our Communities: Non-IPL Events

In an effort to provide resources and connections to the PA IPL community about Climate Justice, we have recently created this resource page which will collect a curated list of relevant upcoming non-IPL events. 

All titles are hyperlinked to each event’s registration page. Please be sure to click on the title of the event you are interested in joining and you will be redirected to the event’s registration page. Dates and times for events are listed below each event title in chronological order.

We will regularly update and add to this list in addition to posting them on our Facebook and Instagram pages.

If you come across such events, or are organizing an event in your own faith tradition or congregation, please let us know so that we can both advertise the amazing work our community is engaged in and invite others to attend or participate in your event. Email us with details.
