Ohio Interfaith Power and Light is a non-profit organization in Ohio that focuses on bringing together people of all religions to aid and discuss the problems facing the modern world concerning climate change. They host multiple events every month uniting faith-driven minds from around the state of Ohio, while not restricting any beliefs from the group. They gather to clean up pollution, as well as advocating for renewable energy solutions for every-day people. This includes installing solar panels and power-grids for people who typically don't have the access to those resources.
In recent history, a new event has been occurring all over the world. In an attempt to generate environmental awareness, various congregations of different faiths have encouraged their members to commute to church via bicycle. This movement has often been stimulated by a blessing of bikes ceremony. Special services have been held in churches and temples all over the world to bless the bikes, keep the cyclists safe, and remember those who have died in accidents.
They are hosting a virtual blessing May 9th, 2020 during the COVID-19 Pandemic, details can be found on their website.
