Our mission is to facilitate the faith community’s response to our changing climate through community programs, education, and advocacy.
Nebraska Interfaith Power & Light is one of 40 state affiliates of the national Interfaith Power & Light coalition. The first state organization was formed in 2000 by Rev. Sally Bingham, an Episcopal priest. Nebraska IPL was formed in 2009 by an interfaith group of leaders. We are a non-partisan and non-sectarian organization. We are not funded by any one religious organization, but do our own grass-roots fundraising. Our goal is to encourage dialogue across the usual political and religious divides, so that we can make real progress in addressing climate change for the people of Nebraska.
The faith communities represented by Nebraska IPL include Lutherans, Presbyterians, Episcopalians, United Methodists, Roman Catholics, United Church of Christ, Buddhists, Seventh-Day-Adventists, Disciples of Christ, Reformed Jews, Quakers, Unitarians, Evangelicals, members of independent churches and the spiritual-but-not-religious. We are currently seeking to build relationships with the Muslim and Hindu communities.
