Dear Members of Congress,
More than 3,400 faith leaders across the United States recently sent a letter to Congress calling for a bold economic recovery and infrastructure package that creates family and community sustaining jobs while caring for our climate and our neighbors. They called on Congress to use this opportunity to invest in the clean energy future while addressing the injustices of the past through:
- Expanding clean, renewable energy and modernizing our electric grid
- Electrifying transportation and expanding public transit
- Ensuring clean water infrastructure for all communities
- Investing with justice
You can view the entire letter and the signers at https://bit.ly/FaithLeadersLettertoCongress.
We believe it is the moral responsibility of our nation, and our sacred task as people of faith, to protect our ecosystems, work for environmental justice and public health, and address the climate crisis.
We urge you to support historic levels of investment that will safeguard Creation, address the impacts of climate change and pollution from fossil fuel extraction and related industries, and fulfill our moral obligation to leave a habitable world for future generations.
Interfaith Power & Light
