On Monday, February 18th, people of faith are gathering in Annapolis to put our faith in action and call for more clean energy jobs in Maryland.
Together, we’re advocating for the Clean Energy Jobs Act, legislation in the Maryland General Assembly that cares for our communities and Creation by:
Requiring 100% of Maryland's energy to come from renewable sources by 2040. Our traditions teach that the wind and sun are blessings -- let’s use them to power our state.
Funding clean energy workforce development to ensure that our neighbors, particularly women and people of color, prosper in the clean energy economy. In hard times, families turn to their religious communities for assistance, and we see the critical need for good, family-supporting jobs.
Eliminating trash incineration from Maryland’s Renewable Portfolio Standard. Over the last few years, we’ve seen polluters try to impose trash incinerators on low-income communities of color. Such facilities shouldn’t count as “renewable,” and we’re advocating for the laws to reflect that.
