Interfaith Eco Justice Field Trip 2017
We have decided to push back the eco-justice field trip for a few months. More information forthcoming. Please contact MikeOles@hoosieripl.org for more information.
Open to college and graduate students, join Hoosier Interfaith Power & Light on our first ever Interfaith Eco Justice Field Trip as we travel to Indiana's Super Polluter zone.
If we want to fight climate change and toxic pollution, Indiana is ground zero.
To be frank, Indiana-based coal plants are killing the Earth and killing Hoosiers. Meanwhile, many of our elected officials, as this recent New York Times article indicates, are fighting the much-needed transition to clean energy.
Join Hoosier Interfaith Power & Light leaders for a weekend of fun, social justice, and learning.
This weekend-long excursion to southwest Indiana will explore issues of eco-justice.
Students and young adults from across Indiana will be leaving from Indianapolis on Friday, September 15th to travel towards Evansville, Indiana, to visit our nation's super pollution zone in southwest Indiana, a region home to some of the United State's most expensive, most toxic and most climate harming, coal plant polluters.
The weekend will include visits to a solar neighborhood, a farmers market, coal ash ponds, super-polluting coal plants, a state park, and overnight stays in Bloomington and Evansville. Click here for itinerary.

Deadline to apply is September 1st, 2017
