Dan Huntshaw from Faith in Place will be here Sunday January 19th at 11:00 a.m. in the Guild Room. Since 1998 Faith and Place has worked with over 1000 churches in Illinois to protect common land, water and air. Faith in Place inspires faithful people to care for the earth.
Their main areas of advocacy are energy and climate change, sustainable food and land use and water preservation. The information from this group is extremely important now as our church works on a capital campaign. Please join us!
Dan first joined Faith in Place in 2014 as a volunteer working to gather grassroots support for the EPA Carbon Rules, and later the Illinois Clean Jobs Bill. In 2015 he joined our outreach staff to help with our smart energy programs in the North & West Chicago suburbs.
He grew up in the northwest suburbs of Chicago, currently resides in Rolling Meadows, and is a member of Countryside Church Unitarian Universalist. His B.A. in Communications is from DePauw University, and he previously volunteered with environmental education and advocacy organizations including The John G. Shedd Aquarium, Sierra Club, and The Climate Reality Project.
By living his philosophy, “Try to learn something from everyone,” while spending time with many climate and advocacy organizations, he’s been able to develop a creative climate communication style that produces action. He strives to be a catalyst for positive healthy change by connecting people’s existing passions with Faith in Place’s action-focused programs.
