Significant Accomplishments

We have facilitated the installation of solar panels on the first two Kentucky churches to use the alternative energy source, educated over 2,000 people on the issues around caring for God's creation by speaking in churches and schools, hosted or co-hosted film showings, gatherings and an environmental justice tour, advocated for legislative change in Washington and worked with a state-wide coalition for change in Frankfort, prayed for those who are poor and vulnerable to climate change and other forms of pollution, are using the latest technology to reach people through our eNewsletter, Courier-Journal.com blog and provided technical consulting and resources to congregation across the state.
