Religion and science are not in opposition on the issue of climate change. Science has a great deal to teach us about both the urgency to act and the solutions that are at hand. Our faith informs the actions that we take to care for Earth and all of its inhabitants. So how do people of faith and conscience seize the moral opportunity to lead on the most important issue of our time?

Join Rev. Susan Hendershot, president of Interfaith Power & Light, and Ken Kimmell, president of the Union of Concerned Scientists, as they undertake their first joint speaking tour on the intersection of faith, science, and climate solutions. They will be joined by leaders from Interfaith Power & Light state affiliates in each location, providing local context and opportunities for action. Please RSVP at
