Pennsylvania Interfaith Power and Light Hosts Conference
Sep 26, 2012 12:44PM
Pennsylvania Interfaith Power and Light (PA-IPL), a community of congregations, faith-based organizations and individuals of faith responding to climate change as a moral issue through advocacy, energy conservation, energy efficiency and the use of clean, renewable energy, will hold its annual conference and meeting, Power for Pennsylvania: Climate Change and Faith-Based Action, from 2 to 6 p.m., October 14, at the Unitarian Church of Harrisburg. This is the state’s largest gathering for people of faith concerned about climate change—a time for interfaith worship, workshops, resource gathering and networking with others that are responding to climate change as a moral issue.
Keynote speakers are Dr. Richard Alley, an Evan Pugh professor of geosciences at the Pennsylvania State University, and Rev. Fletcher Harper, executive director of GreenFaith, a national interfaith organization that inspires, educates and mobilizes people of diverse religious backgrounds for environmental leadership. The afternoon will include a choice of four workshops covering various environmental topics.
Location: 1280 Cloverleaf Ln., Harrisburg. For more information, call 814-876-2597 or visit PAIPL.org.
