About Us

Our Mission

Interfaith Power & Light (DC.MD.NoVA) works with hundreds of congregations of all faiths across DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia to save energy, go green, and respond to climate change.

IPL helps congregations educate, by incorporating environmental concerns into worship, teaching, and preaching.

IPL helps congregations go green, by supporting them in saving energy, purchasing clean power, going solar, and shifting other aspects of their institutional purchasing and practices to minimize environmental impact.

IPL helps congregations speak out as part of state and national advocacy efforts to protect Creation.

We are part of a network of state Interfaith Power & Light groups across the country. Together, we are building a national religious response to the climate crisis.

Our local Interfaith Power & Light is a project of the InterFaith Conference of Metropolitan Washington. Since 1978, IFC has been bringing together the diverse religious communities in the DC area to promote dialogue, understanding, and a sense of community. Eleven faith communities, from Baha’i to Zoroastrian, collaborate through IFC to deepen understanding and to build a just community in metropolitan Washington.
