With fresh hope and renewed commitment…we request your financial support.

The Paris Climate talks (COP-21) just concluded, boasting the greatest gathering of world leaders in history! There are 196 countries in the world. Negotiators from all 196 nations came together to unanimously approve a landmark climate agreement and have pledged specific climate actions. The entire WORLD is collaboratively responding to the crisis!!

The immensity of the challenge calls on all of us to be part of the solutions And here at home, in Delaware, our religious communities – each in their own way, inspired by their own faith – are embracing this moral imperative and taking action.

They are serving as energy resource centers and demonstration sites…They are forming stewardship teams and hosting energy seminars…They are planting community gardens, installing solar panels, distributing energy efficiency kits, and pledging individual acts of conservation…They are meeting with legislators, promoting clean energy policies and advocating for resources for low-income communities…They are partnering with the neighborhoods they serve; promoting money savings, green job creation and healthier environments.

And Delaware Interfaith Power and Light is serving those communities.
