Faith Alliance for Climate Solutions (FACS)
Faith Alliance for Climate Solutions unites people of faith to develop local solutions to the climate crisis.
We pursue four purposes in our work:
- sound an ethical and spiritual call to address climate change;
- encourage moral climate policies from a nonpartisan perspective;
- enable congregations to do good works that protect our planet and its people;
- empower congregations to become champions of change.
We work primarily on the local level, and occasionally on the state level, where we can have the greatest impact.
We work with people of faith. Faithful voices are valuable in the conversation on climate change, and faith-based action draws on a deep well of love for each other and the planet we share.
Our network includes Jewish, Muslim, Catholic, Mainline Protestant, Hindu, Unitarian Universalist, Society of Friends, and other traditions. Our work is done in Northern Virginia, with a primary policy focus on Fairfax County, the most populous jurisdiction in Virginia.
