Join DC's Congregations in Speaking Out to Protect Communities from Dangerous Coal Ash

A guest post by Joelle G. Novey of Greater Washington Interfaith Power and Light

Greater Washington Interfaith Power & Light is delighted to be one of the 2010 DC Green Festival's non-profit allies! Through Interfaith Power & Light, hundreds of congregations of all religious traditions work together to save energy, go green, and respond to climate change.

In so many of our neighborhood congregations, people are heart-sick about the role of coal power in producing the heat-trapping gases that are causing global climate change. They are working to reduce their electricity use in their sanctuaries and at home. They are using their energy dollars to support wind energy generation. And they are figuring out how to put solar panels on their roofs.

Lately, our network of concerned communities has been speaking out on the issue of coal ash -- the toxic waste product of coal-fired power plants.
