Sign up to be on the policy call reminder list!
Calls take place on 4th Thursdays, from 5:00-6:00 PM; If you are on the list, you will also get a written call summary with a discussion hook, a couple of action items, and some background.
You are welcome to join these Zoom calls from your phone or your computer — we share links in the chat during the call which will later appear in the summary. There is no fee to participate, just your normal costs for call minutes or internet service.
These monthly calls are a chance to develop and freshen a base of knowledge about current and emerging policy and legislation linked to climate change and climate justice. We focus on state and federal legislation, highlighting municipal developments from time to time. Our focus is on important issues and roles for Pennsylvanians, and on moral, ethical, and faith-rooted messages.
These calls are open to people at any stage of advocacy and policy involvement. We begin and end with a short meditation, reflection, prayer or centering breath, and we always include positive news, a discussion hook (for conversation with elected officials, family, friends, neighbors, or a congregational study group). The follow-on always includes one federal and one state-level action item.
The resources that support this call come from and through a variety of sources: IPL national, the Washington Inter-religious Staff Community and connected organizations, the US Climate Action Network, PennFuture, and more.
