MNIPL is proud to engage congregations in meaningful, systemic action for climate justice at the state and federal level. We know the importance of using our faith and moral voices to push our leaders to create bold climate policy solutions. Take a look at our current policy initiatives below!
Interested in joining MNIPL’s Policy Team? We are a team of volunteers and staff who seek to mobilize people of faith to advocate for policy initiatives addressing the climate crisis and creating a 100% renewable, equitable, and sustainable future for all. We meet every other Monday from 6:30-8 pm on Zoom. Everyone is welcome! Email [email protected] to learn more.
Forward on Federal Climate Action
In early 2021, we have a critical window of time to pass the bold, federal climate legislation that we need. It's up to our faith communities to demand bold climate action!
MNIPL is organizing virtual meetings with all eight MN Congressional Representatives. They need to hear from as many congregations in their district as possible about why we need bold climate legislation in 2021. Your congregation has an opportunity to join your district's meeting, to share a story about why climate action is important to you.
We will help you facilitate a virtual prep meeting, where your community will brainstorm the story you want to share. You'll also pick a representative to speak at the Congressional meeting.
To get started, fill out this interest form and select the “Meet with your Congressperson” option. An MNIPL staffer will get in touch soon!
