Faith in Place Partners with Both Hoosier and Wisconsin Interfaith Power & Light—Now Working Towards Environmental Justice in Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin


ILLINOIS, INDIANA and WISCONSIN, Feb. 22, 2022—Environmental non-profit organizations Faith in Place, Hoosier Interfaith Power & Light and Wisconsin Interfaith Power & Light announced today that they are partnering and will now be working together as one entity across Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin. Each organization is a state affiliate of Interfaith Power & Light, a national organization that empowers people of diverse faiths and spiritualities to take bold and just action on climate change.  

This partnership will create Faith in Place—the Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin Affiliate of Interfaith Power & Light. With strongly aligned missions centered around climate justice and action, these three organizations are eager to join forces—strengthening and amplifying their individual efforts through regional partnership. 

The Midwest is already experiencing the impacts of climate change with increased temperatures, heat waves and flooding. In 2019, Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin were responsible for over 10 percent of total U.S. CO2 emissions—contributing to the country’s record of being the second-largest emitter of greenhouse gases globally.

“With the U.S. falling short of the emission cuts necessary to curb warming below the 1.5-degree limit of the Paris Agreement, it’s critical for states to quickly adopt climate policies like Illinois’ Climate and Equitable Jobs Act, to equitably transition to clean energy,” said Rev. Brian Sauder, Executive Director of Faith in Place. “We are thrilled to partner with both Hoosier and Wisconsin Interfaith Power & Light to further expand our faithful advocacy for bold climate action across the Midwest.”

As new members of Faith in Place’s outreach team, current Hoosier Interfaith Power & Light and Wisconsin Interfaith Power & Light staff will support the organization in strengthening its environmental advocacy, education and project-based community work in Indiana and Wisconsin—working with faith communities in each state to lead these initiatives.
