Be an Advocate

We believe that people of faith (ordained and lay) and people of conscience are powerful moral spokespeople, and we endeavor to give our supporters opportunities to make their voices heard. 

Recognizing that climate change is one of the greatest threats to life on Earth, we prioritize advocating for renewable and efficient energy and for water protection and justice. 

In recent years, here are a few of the efforts we've been involved in:

  • supporting the EPA's Clean Power Plan
  • advocating for strong energy efficiency and renewable energy standards in Michigan's clean energy laws
  • demanding the shutdown of Enbridge's Line 5 pipeline
  • advocating for clean, affordable water for all
  • the Poor People's Campaign
  • opposing the rollback of car fuel efficiency standards (CAFE)
  • urging regulators to require utilities to generate the cleanest, most efficient energy possible at fair rates

As opportunities to get involved and take action arise, we'll post them here.

We're also interested in knowing about what issues matter to you. If you're working on something you think might be of interest to the Michigan IPL community, tell us about it below.
