GUEST BLOG: Interfaith Power & Light Encourages Advocacy on Federal Budget

As people of faith we know that climate change is the moral issue of our time, but sadly many of our elected officials don’t see it that way. 

President Trump is proposing a budget that would eliminate the ENERGY STAR program, cut clean energy research and slash 31% of EPA funding. 

As people of faith, we cannot allow this to happen. We need to speak up and put climate change solutions front and center in the national agenda.

You can help do that by going to a town hall meeting this summer and telling your representative to advocate for programs that address global warming. Congress is not going to take action without hearing from voters.

Town hall meetings are the place where our legislators are supposed to listen to the voice of the American people.  

Attend a town hall and tell your legislator why climate change is a moral issue. 

One person can’t do everything, but everyone can do something. We need to talk about climate change with our friends, family, faith leaders, and our elected leaders. 

Access Interfaith Power & Light’s town hall toolkit and get talking points, signs, materials, and information about where your town hall meeting will be held.

Thank you for being part of this religious movement to address climate change and thank you for taking action.

With Hope,
