Rhode Island Interfaith Power & Light believes that as we come together as people of faith, we find the inspiration, energy, and resources we need to tackle the issue of climate change — so we can fulfill our moral obligation to care for creation.
Made up of 29 local congregations and faith organizations, RI Interfaith Power & Light continues to lead the state by voicing our concerns over climate impacts and taking action to mitigate the effects of climate change on our most vulnerable citizens.
As people of faith, we believe we all have a moral responsibility to protect the Earth’s natural systems, and to safeguard the well-being of those most vulnerable to climate change, but least responsible for it — the poor of the world and future generations. Therefore,
- we work with local faith-based organizations to raise awareness about climate change and related spiritual teachings;
- we assist religious communities in promoting energy conservation, energy efficiency, renewable energy and other forms of sustainable living; and
- we advocate for public policies that will effectively minimize global warming.
Together with other state leaders, we provide education on the issues of climate change, as well as concrete action steps congregations and individuals can take to make a difference on this over-arching issue.
We invite you to join us in this vital calling!
