Changes in public policies are needed to undo the harm that has been done to our environment, specifically the Chesapeake Bay, and to work towards a more sustainable future.

People of faith have a special calling to bring their insights and values into the public forum. IPC is here to help you bring your voice to bear in advocating for stewardship of God’s Creation.

To receive more frequent updates and action alerts, please sign up here to be an Advocacy Leader.
