Jonathan Rigby (VAIPL) “Environmental Justice: Where We Are and Where We Hope to Be” Sometimes, taking stock of the state of the natural world can be disheartening. We hear on the news about the climate crisis, rising temperatures and sea levels, and injustices, local and worldwide. When we think about environmental justice, it’s important to both think of where we are and to look beyond into where we hope to be. How can our actions today, together and with God, move us toward that hopeful future? Jonathan Rigby is Faith Outreach Coordinator for Virginia Interfaith Power and Light. After graduation from William and Mary, Jon was called to the intersection of faith and climate justice during a year with the Episcopal Service Corps, witnessing the impact of Hurricane Matthew on communities across the state. Jon received joint Master’s Degrees in Environmental Science and Divinity from Yale University, where he was heavily involved in street tree planting, community greening initiatives, and coordinating with faith communities to plant gardens on their campuses. Jon lives in Richmond with his wife and their siamese cat. What: We are pleased to offer multi-platform services, both in-person and on Zoom.
