On Sunday, newspapers in key areas across the country printed full-page ads addressing congressional representatives. The message in the ads, sponsored by Interfaith Power & Light, was from religious leaders about the importance of protecting Creation.

The ads ran in The Desert Sun (CA), Rocky Mount Telegram (NC), The Daily Reflector (NC), The Marquette Mining Journal (MI), The Augusta Chronicle (GA), and Savannah Morning News (GA).

On Wednesday, similar ads will run in San Antonio Express-News (TX) and Traverse City Record-Eagle (MI).

In The Desert Sun:

The American Clean Energy & Security Act of 2009.

A VOTE IN CONGRESS OR A TEST OF FAITH?

Representative Bono Mack:

Religious leaders call on you to use your power to protect Creation and the people of California.

God makes it very clear that we should be good stewards of the Earth. And God also calls on us to love our neighbors as ourselves. But volatile fuel prices, pollution and global warming harm the most vulnerable among us-particularly the poor, the elderly, minorities, and the farmers who provide food for our families.

Powerful interests in Washington are opposing action, but Representative Bono Mack is in a position to stand up for the vulnerable and move California toward a new energy economy at the same time. She can vote for the American Clean Energy and Security Act. This law will spur innovation and investment in clean energy in California-meaning more jobs, more stable utility bills and clean air.

Please call 877.666.3394 to urge Representative Bono Mack to vote YES on the American Clean Energy & Security Act of 2009.
