This year has been marked by anxiety and stress for most all of us for a myriad of reasons, and the election is no exception. We are in this together as people of faith. Here's your election checklist:

Through a partnership between Interfaith Power & Light (DC.MD.NoVA), Virginia Interfaith Power and Light, and Faith Alliance for Climate Solutions, pastors, rabbis, imams, and other clergies in faith communities across the region declared voting a sacred responsibility of the Beloved Community and voiced this message leading up to the election. Read more about how faith communities participated in this year's Climate in the Pulpits in the Faith Community Spotlight section of the newsletter.

In order to create a more equitable county, the Fairfax County Chairman’s Task Force on Equity and Opportunity is seeking YOUR insights and ideas to guide their strategies. Please answer the Task Force's short survey by November 6 so that your voice is heard and together we accelerate progress towards becoming One Fairfax.




The 2020 Election and the Climate Crisis

More voters than ever before believe the climate crisis is the critical issue driving the 2020 campaign. What will the election results mean for the climate crisis and the critical work the Faith Alliance for Climate Solutions (FACS) is doing to combat the growing threat of a warming planet? Join us on November 5 for insights from Anthony Granado, FACS board member and vice president of government relations for a major national charity.

Help us accomplish more!

Our annual giving campaign launched and will run through December 31. The campaign will provide the funds for implementing FACS’ 2021 advocacy priorities, educational programs, and community outreach. Additionally, it will include helping to replicate the FACS model, a proven success in faith-based climate advocacy, in other Virginia cities and counties.



Fairfax to Zero is an ambitious effort to promote local policies that will reduce greenhouse gases emitted in the county, reaching carbon neutrality by 2050, if not sooner.

Our Advocacy Priorities are outlined in an e-book that focuses on attainable and impactful strategies that will promote clean air, improved health, new businesses, and sustainable jobs for future generations to come.


Nearly 60 faith communities across the D.C. metropolitan region participated in this year's Climate in the Pulpits by openly voicing their commitment to climate justice and the beloved community. Read more on the blog.
