This month’s Sustained Advocacy Policy Update call is Thursday, September 23rd from 5:00 – 6:00 PM. We will be joined by Jonathan Lacock-Nisly, Federal Policy Associate for Interfaith Power and Light (IPL). He will give updates on IPL as well as talk about next steps in the Build Back Better Agenda.
The House is back in Session and we are closer than ever to Congress passing historic clean energy legislation. We will discuss opportunities to advocate with Congress for two policies related to the U.S. climate response in recovery legislation: Clean Electricity Payment Program (CEPP), and clean energy, transportation, and manufacturing incentives.
In August 2021, the EPA proposed revisions to existing national greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions standards for passenger cars and light trucks for Model Years 2023 – 2026. We will discuss resources as well as a few things you can use to help amplify efforts to bring attention to this issue.
Register here for this meeting.
PLEASE NOTE THE NEW MEETING TIME OF 5:00-6:00 PM EST
You are welcome to join these Zoom calls from your phone or your computer — we share links in the chat during the call which will later appear in the summary. There is no fee to participate, just your normal costs for call minutes or internet service. We are able to do this work because of financial donations of all sizes, given by people like you.
These calls are scheduled monthly, and are a chance to develop and maintain a base of knowledge about current and emerging climate policy and legislation, municipal through federal, with a focus on important issues and/or roles for Pennsylvanians and moral, ethical, and faith-rooted messages.
The calls are open to people at any stage of advocacy and policy involvement. We begin and end with a short meditation, reflection, prayer or centering breath, and include both reports and discussion. We will identify and/or choose a limited number of key actions for each month.
The resources that support this call come from and through a variety of sources: IPL national, the Washington Inter-religious Staff Community and connected organizations, the US Climate Action Network, and PennFuture.
