Faith Alliance for Climate Solutions: Local solutions to the climate crisis powered by the faith community

Local officials tell us that they want to act on climate change but they need constituent support. The faith community is uniquely positioned to deliver the message of acting on climate change as a moral imperative. We invite you to join us in growing support for acting on the climate crisis with urgency, and prioritizing equitable solutions to minimize human suffering through strong climate policies. 

FACS organizes advocacy teams in Fairfax County, Arlington County, and the City of Alexandria. Interested in joining an advocacy team? Contact us!
