Minnesota Interfaith Power & Light believes the active care of creation is integral to spiritual life and social justice. Through leadership and guidance to Minnesota’s faith communities, we respond to climate change by bringing faith communities together and providing opportunities for congregations to join the growing climate justice movement.
Since our founding as Congregations Caring for Creation in 2004, we have mobilized religious support for landmark legislation to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Minnesota, educated hundreds of thousands of congregants, and worked with every major religious denomination in the state.
Over the next five years we plan to help faith communities to
- Provide networking opportunities featuring speakers, resources, action ideas and a chance to meet with like-minded people
- Give voice to the concerns of faith communities in public policy debates
- Deepen the conversation about the connection between climate change and our moral call to justice.
