In light of the spread of COVID-19 some planned events may switch to virtual events. The Faith Climate Action Week kit can help you plan virtual events or switch your event to virtual.
Sacred Activism Event – Encourage members of your congregation to post photos of themselves with their placards that they planned to use for their event to social media using the hashtag #FaithClimateActionWeek during Faith Climate Action Week. Your virtual event will have greater impact when everyone does it at the same time using the same hashtag #FaithClimateActionWeek. Be sure to write a faith-based message and the name of your congregation on your placard. Find suggestions for messages and images from IPL leaders across the nation in the Sacred Activism Art Guide in the kit.
Faith Climate Voter Pledge campaign – Invite your congregants to sign the online pledge to vote with the climate in mind. Download the postcard from the kit, take a photo of yourself with it, and post to social media with the hastag #FaithClimateVoter and tag @interfaithpowerandlight and invite others to sign. Link to the online pledge. IPL is collecting pledges all year leading up to election day in November.
Join the National Earth Day Climate Prayer – Invite members of your congregation to download the prayer to recite at 12noon local time on Earth Day. Click and pray along with Rev. Hendershot, IPL President and other religious leaders with their videos on IPL’s FB page. Share IPL’s FB post about the prayer to your FB page.
Plant trees in the Global South to celebrate Earth Day through IPL’s Carbon Covenant program. $5 plants a tree that will live to maturity and sequester one ton of carbon pollution. Consider a monthly donation to offset your emissions.
This must-have kit accompanies Interfaith Power & Light’s Faith Climate Action Week around Earth Day. It includes everything needed to run a successful climate activity with your faith community. The kit is “evergreen” and can be used any time during the year.
