Each and every one of your gifts is truly transformative: it allows for greater outreach in fulfilling our mission to be faithful stewards of Creation. 

Thank you for joining with people of faith across Rhode Island who are committed to protecting God's Creation and ensure climate justice for the poor and our future generations.
RI 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 20 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.

To fulfill our moral responsibilities to be faithful stewards of Creation...
  • We work with local faith- based organizations to raise awareness about climate change, related spiritual teachings and practical responses.
  • We speak with and on behalf of the religious community to promote energy conservation, energy efficiency and renewable energy.
  • We advocate protecting Earth’s ecosystems, and safeguarding the well-being of future generations and of the poor of the world who are least responsible for, but most vulnerable to, climate-change impacts.

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 ministry!
