With less than 100 days until the midterm elections, a national network of state-based environmental faith groups is gearing up for a final push to register their communities to vote and then cast ballots with caring for creation front-of-mind.
Since the spring, Interfaith Power & Light has mobilized its state chapters to engage their local congregations through its Faith Climate Justice Voter campaign. The effort seeks to increase the number of registered voters and to educate communities of all religious traditions about the importance of voting and what’s at stake in the coming elections for the environment, climate change and democracy.
