The Regeneration Project
- Interfaith Power and Light Campaign
The Regeneration Project’s Interfaith Power & Light campaign aims to motivate the American public and policy makers to act on global warming as a moral issue. People of faith are called to be stewards of Creation and to care for “the least of these,” and climate change is disproportionately affecting vulnerable communities.
Because polls show that ninety percent of Americans believe in God, and nearly two-thirds report an association with a religious congregation, IPL has a very large potential constituency to reach. Through coordination by the national organization and outreach by staff and volunteers in 40 state affiliates, IPL educates and inspires action by congregations of all faiths across America. As a result, houses of worship are going green, solar panels are sprouting on church rooftops, and clergy are preaching about our moral obligation to care for Creation.
IPL and its vibrant network of state organizations are reaching millions of people in the pews, building a new constituency for action, and deepening our spiritual connection to the environment.
