California Interfaith Power and Light (CIPL) and the documentary producers of Renewal are coordinating an interfaith event to honor the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. “Renewal L.A.” will make a powerful statement to Southern California as well as the nation, that religious communities can experience a reinvigoration of faith as they speak out about climate change and environmental justice.
This inspiring evening of interfaith environmental solidarity will feature the Los Angeles premiere of Renewal, diverse religious leaders joining together in sacred expression of care for the earth, and several guest speakers including Bill McKibben, Mary Nichols (Chair, California Air Resources Board), Robin Nelson (Unitarian Universalist Association), and a representative from California Interfaith Power and Light.
The event will conclude with a Call for people to translate faith into action -- an opportunity for religious communities to defend AB32, California’s Global Warming Solutions Act (on the books since 2006) -- currently under attack by oil company interests.
