MNIPL Arrowhead Network
Over 25 congregations in the Arrowhead region are working in interfaith collaboration to grow a climate movement that can take our communities and the Arrowhead Region to the next level in organizing for a just and sustainable future!
We are engaged congregants and community members from a broad range of backgrounds who are focusing on solutions and projects representing MNIPL's three paths of engagement in climate organizing:
Practical – Carbon Reduction
Work to develop community solar, including special opportunities for congregations
Support energy efficiency solutions across the boundaries of faith, neighborhood and income.
Systemic Change - Policy Advocacy
Engage in conversations, public events and letter writing to bring the need for climate action to the forefront
Join with statewide and nationwide movements such as the Clean Energy and Jobs campaign to advocate for specific public policy measures
Advocate for stronger opportunities for solar power in the Arrowhead and across rural Minnesota
Investigate the fossil fuel Divest-Reinvest movement and options for individual and institutional action
Build hope and strength to continue our work in healing our relationships with each other and the natural world
Organize or participate in a “Be the Spark” workshop series to identify our gifts and commitments to climate action
Hold “climate conversations” in congregations across the region to nurture the growth of their “creation care” or “green teams” to address climate change
- Deepen theological/spiritual awareness of our connections with the earth and the web of all life which is present in all major religious traditions
Join us at a monthly meeting. Check the calendar on the MNIPL website or email email@example.com for dates and times.
