About Michigan Interfaith Power & Light
Founded in 2002, Michigan IPL works statewide to gather and focus the immense grassroots power within Michigan’s faith communities to help them become leaders in the effort to address the climate crisis and environmental degradation. Based in Detroit since 2019, we are part of the 40-state national Interfaith Power & Light network and are connected with over 300 member congregations representing over 30 denominations and traditions statewide. We believe that our climate crisis and environmental injustice are also spiritual and moral crises. To repair our climate and create a world where all beings can thrive, we believe that transformation will be required at all levels, from 1) our spirits to 2) our everyday lived realities to our 3) social and political systems. To these ends, we host webinars, participate in coalitions and campaigns around utility accountability and energy-related legislation, promote non-partisan voter engagement, and support faith-based organizations in taking action towards sustainability and climate justice.
