Not only does Rev. Susan Hendershot state that climate change is a moral issue, she sees that it is disproportionately impacting those who are most vulnerable in our world. Hendershot has served as President of Interfaith Power & Light since 2018 and will be joining our panel “State of the Earth” to further discuss this at FORUM2020. Interfaith Power & Light inspires and mobilizes people of faith and conscience to take bold and just action on climate change.
Prior to becoming President of The Regeneration Project and Interfaith Power & Light, Rev. Hendershot served as the Executive Director at Iowa Interfaith Power & Light for seven years. She is ordained in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) with an M. Div. from Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, a B.A. from Bethany College in Bethany, West Virginia, and a certificate in Spiritual Direction. Prior to Iowa IPL, Rev. Hendershot served as a pastor in both Disciples of Christ and United Methodist congregations, focusing on social justice ministries. She also served as the first Heartland Field Organizer for the ONE Campaign on global poverty. Currently Rev. Hendershot serves as co-chair of the Executive Committee for the RE-AMP Steering Committee, a network of over 170 climate, energy, and environmental organizations throughout the Midwest.
