Together in Howard (PATH) website! PATH is an interfaith network
of active communities in Howard County and an affiliate of the
Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF).
Industrial Areas Foundation is the oldest and largest
institution for community organizing in the United States. For
sixty years, the IAF's mission has been to train people to take
responsibility for solving the problems in their own communities
and to renew the interest of citizens in public life.
Join PATH in a hands-on training and tour on how we can
effectively address one of our top environmental issues,
starting in our own congregations and communities. This training
will give you the basics of:
- What is stormwater runoff?
- Why is it such an important environmental and political
- How can a local, green approach save money, and benefit
our community while creating local jobs?
- What can my congregation and neighborhood do to address
this issue in our backyards and with our elected officials?
- How can we organize around this issue to create local,
The training is for members and friends of PATH
congregations, and will include breakfast and a tour of how
one congregation is addressing this issue for their building
and parking lot.
