From the most recent year of devastating hurricanes, wildfires, and record-breaking temperatures, to a mountain of evidence-based science, it’s clear climate change is threatening our livelihoods and the fragile, interconnected web of life. We cannot continue our current course of inaction.
Interfaith Power & Light and thousands of people of faith and conscience around the country urge our elected leaders to consider the moral opportunity that climate change presents to build a more just and equitable world for all, using these FAITH principles:
- FRONTLINE, vulnerable, and BIPOC communities must be supported first
- ACCELERATE the transition to clean energy and commit to net-zero climate pollution in electricity by 2035
- INVEST in climate resiliency and sustainable infrastructure
- TRANSITION our workforce to clean energy jobs with support and job training for workers
- HONOR Creation by following science and commit to net-zero climate pollution by 2050
