Do you want to be part of a movement to heal a broken world? If so, we invite you to join us for this dynamic and experiential training!

Minnesota EarthKeepers are excited to partner with Minnesota Interfaith Power & Light (MNIPL) to offer this training in effective organizing for faith communities. Participants will learn how to invite the gifts and skills of those in their community to build a more just and sustainable world.

We will reflect on the theological resources of our faith tradition(s) and practice the skills we need to sustain and broaden our mission of healing and hope, particularly as it relates to creation care and environmental justice in our communities. We welcome people of all faith traditions to join us for one of these training events:
