Ready to voice your faith-based values and advocate for meaningful climate action?

Faith Alliance for Climate Solutions (FACS) unites people of faith, and friends who share our values, to develop local solutions to the climate crisis. Faithful voices are valuable in the conversation on climate change, and faith-based action draws upon our deep well of love for each other and all living things. Our work is done in Northern Virginia and nearby jurisdictions. We began in Fairfax County, the most populous locality in Virginia.

Our network includes Jewish, Muslim, Catholic, Mainline Protestant, Hindu, Unitarian Universalist, Society of Friends, and other traditions.
