Interfaith Partners for the Chesapeake celebrates the recognition of Juneteenth as a National Holiday. In the words of Maya Angelou, we work to help congregations and their members to “do better” as people of color continue in their need for emancipation from polluted land, waters and disparities in environmental health. 

We invite you to:

  • Connect with our work with Environmental Justice 
  • Watch our two recent webinars as examples of carrying out racial justice through environmental action: 
    • May 6, 2021: Environmental Justice in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed What kind of Environmental Justice issues are there in the Chesapeake Bay watershed region?  Access a recording of the session here
    • June 3, 2021: Creation’s Cure-All? The What, Why and How of Tree Planting  Are trees nature's "cure-all"? Learn the benefits of trees to the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. Access a recording of the session here

IPC is dedicated to racial justice by working with communities of color that are more adversely affected by environmental degradation in collaboration with all faith communities.
